From advertising and technology, to fashion, entertainment, sports, and more, BizBash has curated its 2014 list of New York's Top 100 Events-and has named The International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York to this exclusive list. To choose and rank the Top 100 list, BizBash considers several factors including economic impact, buzz, innovation, and the event's prominence within the communities it intends to serve.
The International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York - known as the New York Restaurant Show - was held from March 2-4 this year at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York. Highlights from the event included the Ferdinand Metz Foodservice Forum; a Culinary Demonstration Theater featuring top chefs; the Farm to City Expo, sponsored by NYS Department of Agriculture and Markets; the Pride of New York/Taste NY Marketplace showcasing locally grown products; the Japanese Restaurant Organizations' Umami Pavilion recipe contest; the Food Trends Experience which showcased 75 new food and beverage companies; and Paris Gourmet's US Pastry Chef of the Year Competition, in addition to 500 vendors showcasing the latest products and services from the industry.
"We want to thank BizBash for this honor. We work closely with the New York State Restaurant Association to put on an exciting event and it is wonderful to be recognized as one of the Top 100 events in New York," said Ron Mathews, Industry Vice President for Urban Expositions' Foodservice Events. "Kudos to our staff who work hard all year to develop exciting events and partnerships to create the buzz and enthusiasm from our attendees and exhibitors ."
"New York's event calendar has no shortage of influential gatherings that take place year after year. The landscape is diverse and certainly gives other cities a run for their money when it comes to big names, fund-raising numbers, and press mentions," says BizBash executive editor Anna Sekula. "But it certainly changes, too. The past few years have seen the thriving local tech scene lead to a number of prominent conferences, from Internet Week to the New York Tech Meetup and Wired's BizCon. And there are new entries alongside long-established events, like the Forbes 400 Summit on Philanthropy, the Frieze Art Fair, and Governors Ball Music Festival."
