(Drinks Media Wire). Special “early bird” online-only pricing offered through December 1, 2010
The National Restaurant Association today opened attendee registration for its 2011 Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show and International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event (IWSB). A special “early bird” online-only discount is available for restaurant and hospitality industry professionals who register before December 1, 2010. National Restaurant Association members receive free registration for the NRA Show and a member-exclusive rate on IWSB registration. Attendees may register online at www.restaurant.org/show or www.winespiritsbeer.org.
NRA Show 2011 will be held May 21-24 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, and is the restaurant and hospitality industry’s most comprehensive trade show. IWSB 2011 will be held in conjunction with the NRA Show on May 22-23, and is the only beverage alcohol event exclusively focused on growing restaurant and hospitality bar programs.
“NRA Show 2011 will provide more opportunities and business leads than any other industry event, and registering now gives you access to all four days of world-class events, education sessions and a bustling exhibit floor for only $30,” said David Gilbert, chief operating officer of the National Restaurant Association. “And IWSB is the one place where attendees will find everything they need to build better and more profitable bar programs.”
Before December 1, 2010, registration for the NRA Show is only $30, and IWSB registration is $85. Between December 2, 2010, and April 15, 2011, NRA Show registration is $45 and IWSB registration is $100. After April 15, registration fees increase to $90 for the NRA Show and $145 for IWSB.
National Restaurant Association members may register free of charge and receive a value-added discounted rate of $55 when registering for IWSB at any time.
The NRA Show saw an 11.2 percent increase in registered attendees this year, and attracts tens of thousands of foodservice and hospitality professionals from all 50 states and 100+ countries. It is the premier venue to find new products and services, build relationships and network, learn from experts and peers, as well as explore the latest trends in food and beverage, equipment, training and cooking techniques.
IWSB 2010 represented hundreds of brands and labels from the world’s best vintners, distillers and brewers, and boasted more than 3,000 qualified registrants, a 24 percent increase over 2009.
