This annual Fall event is the largest trade show in the state of Oklahoma and the most important event for foodservice and hospitality industry professionals, offering a restyled floorplan and exciting educational seminars and mixology demonstrations. The show features hundreds of exhibits, an opening night party, the ever-popular Culinary Cook-off (founded by Oswalt Restaurant Supply), the exciting Cocktail Shakedown, industry-specific workshops, and over 6,000 industry attendees.
Trade shows are still the most cost effective selling tool. They give you the biggest return on your marketing dollar and allow you to meet decision makers face-to-face and close the deal on the spot. Your sales staff can meet more potential buyers during this two-day show than they could talk to in months of telephone or personal visits. Your customers can touch, taste, feel and experience your products and services, which gives you the competitive edge.
The Oklahoma Restaurant Convention & Expo provides you with a target audience of between 6,000 and 7,000 foodservice professionals at the state’s largest private- industry tradeshow. This show creates an atmosphere which promotes relationship-building through networking and promotional opportunities. Because this is a private-industry tradeshow and it is restricted to those 18 and over, your audience is specifically decision-makers with buying power.
