“There is undeniable synergy between the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show and Pizza Tomorrow Summit, and we are thrilled to offer industry suppliers unprecedented access to this combined group of highly qualified buyers in what is one of the largest and rapidly growing food and beverage markets in the country,” said Glenn Celentano, Founder, The Pizza Tomorrow Summit and Partner, Restaurant Events, LLC. “Restaurant, pizza, foodservice, and lodging professionals will find a convenient and efficient way to access top subject matter experts addressing key issues in cross over education, see a full range of products from leading vendors, and be inspired and entertained from several exciting special events and competitions.”

The two events will sit side by side in the same exhibit hall, so registrants will have easy access to both shows.

Exhibitors include Sysco, Cheney Brothers, Roma brought to you by Performance Food Service, Bellissimo Foods, Fiero Group, Ken’s Foodservice, Shadowspec Umbrellas, ACF Central Florida Chapter, RL Schreiber, and many more.
