It's not just the National Restaurant Association celebrating its centennial this year. Also in 1919, about 200 members of the foodservice industry from across 14 U.S. states and Canada gathered to discuss key issues impacting the industry. That convention has since grown into the industry's largest trade show, with more than 60,000 attendees and about 2,300 exhibitors each year, providing operators, suppliers and others in the foodservice space the opportunity to learn, network and experience.
