But what if you need help sampling a food or beverage brand to the masses? What if your TV personality chef wants their special recipe to reach a crowd of hungry fans? That’s where a reliable catering partner can help. This is what you came to Chicago to do, after all, and the show must go on. Read on for ways FIG supports food and beverage brands on and off the trade show floor.
SPOILER ALERT : a caterer will make your life easier
On the Tradeshow Floor
Your product handled in a commercial kitchen, by food safety certified pros.
Your brand should look and taste its best. Find a caterer who is comfortable with customization and knows local produce.
Procuring ingredients; because you’re not going to fly with 50# of vegan cheese.
Punctual and Friendly Staff
No frantic phone calls or racing across the exhibition hall before the doors open. Trust that you’ll be able to interact with thousands of booth visitors while professional event staff set up, serve samples, and clean up.
Think food service equipment, serving pieces, platters, ice… You’re going to need it all.
Licensed and Insured Bar Partnerships
Avoid potential red tape. Alcohol service laws can be tricky to navigate, especially in Chicago.
Best plate forward, always.
Sustainable Event Management
Trade shows are incredibly wasteful. Consider options like composting and food mile tracking to help make your footprint less like a steel-toed boot and more like a ballerina slipper.
Off the Tradeshow Floor
- Skip the crowded restaurants and cut through the noise by hosting your clients and VIPs at an off premise event. FIG can connect you to private venues near a convention center.
