New Pavilions to Spice Up Americas Food & Beverage Show

The 11th Americas Food & Beverage Show, billed as the largest Americas-focused food and beverage event in the hemisphere, will debut three new pavilions in response to buyer demand, according to its organizers: wine, equipment, and kosher.

The annual event, being held Sept. 24 - 26 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, will also feature an expanded organics and natural foods pavilion, the annual Americas Chef Competition organized by Le Cordon Blue College of Culinary Arts, the New Products Showcase, and the return of the "Hot Toques" Parade, an exclusive signature event saluting South Florida's top chefs.

More than 5,000 retailers, distributors, importers, foodservice professionals, and exhibitors from across the globe are expected to attend.

"This year's show promises to be our biggest ever with thousands of innovative new products from the U.S., Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, Europe, and Asia; top-tier buyers; and a full schedule of events, educational seminars, and extras," said show director Jelena Meisel in a statement.

The Americas Food & Beverage Show was aunched by the World Trade Center Miami in 1998 to promote bi-lateral trade for the food and beverage industry throughout the Western Hemisphere.
