Thank You For Making NAPICS 2013 A Success!
Thanks to you, our valued attendees, NAPICS 2013 was a memorable success. You, along with some thousands of your foodservice peers, walked our show floor aisles seeing, tasting and touching the latest wares, foods and beverages from over 175 exhibiting companies.
With the insights you provided us through last year’s attendee survey, we were able to pack even more dynamic programming designed into this year’s program. Demonstrations and seminars Sunday and Monday attracted nearly 900 attendees to learn more about marketing and managing their businesses and maximizing revenue.
