Fancy Food Show Sells Out of Booth Space

Specialty Food Association’s 67th Summer Fancy Food Show is officially sold out of exhibitor booth space.

This year’s Show will cover nearly 300,000 square feet of floor space at the Javits Center in New York and feature thousands of artisan products from more than 2,000 domestic and global specialty food and beverage makers and manufacturers. The Show will feature a keynote address by celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis, and a variety of networking and educational events throughout all three days, June 25-27.

“After several years of uncertainty around live events, this year's sold out Summer Fancy Food Show sends a clear message that specialty food makers and manufacturers value and depend on in-person events to conduct business," said SFA President Bill Lynch. “The Fancy Food Shows are the premiere destination for buyers to taste products and connect with makers of high-quality, artisan foods and beverages, and we're excited to welcome thousands of industry professionals to New York City in just a few weeks.”
