2019 NRA Show

Media Proposal 

Celebrating the

100th Anniversary of the NRA Show (& Food Fair's 15th!)

2019 marks 100 years of the NRA foodservice show in Chicago and we are celebrating with big marketing savings to exhibitors. 

Food Fair Magazine

& Foodservice Daily News


email header1.jpg

For 15 years Foodservice Daily News and FoodFair Magazine have delivered timely new product information from exhibitors attending the NRA and NAFEM shows.

As you may know, the 2019 NRA show marks 100 years since its inception.
To celebrate this, we are putting together a “jumbo” issue that will
contain expanded business profiles and timely industry trends coverage. 
To make this a true jumbo issue we are  providing additional pages of
space at substantial discounts. All the complete program details are below.
Our talented staff  continues to create a high quality b2b magazine with
the goal of having a shelf life long after the NRA show has concluded.

Also, to keep you in the game after the show, we will include 

your marketing in our summer issue at no charge. A great follow up issue!
