Over 80 local and national exhibitors will showcase the latest in culinary technology and techniques at the American Culinary Federation Caxambas Chapter of Naples & Marco Island (ACFCC) Culinary and Foodservice Showcase 2016. The one-day culinary and foodservice exhibition is geared toward culinary professionals as well as food service managers and buyers. The public is welcome to check out the showcase as well.
“Attendees can benefit from educating themselves on current trends in the food market and seeing first-hand the new technology and equipment. All this provides the opportunity for chefs and business owners alike to run a much more efficient and trendier operation,” said Chas Tatigian CEC, CCA President of the ACFCC and Executive Chef of the TwinEagles Club in Naples.
“Vendors have an opportunity to market their food and equipment to an increasingly in-demand and fast growing local market in SWFL.”
The exhibition will be held at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa Monday, October 10 between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. and will feature culinary demonstrations, prize drawings and raffles.
