The Party's On!
A toast to 60 years of IFEC
We're celebrating IFEC's 60th Anniversary during NRA Show week. It couldn't be more fitting -- we were founded by a group of foodservice editors and PR executives gathered for cocktails at the 1956 Show. Mark your calendar for Monday, May 23rd, 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm at Hotel Palomar Chicago.
A special party like this calls for sponsors like you! Go to the events page and click on NRA Reception Sponsorships for details.

Thanks, Portland! You're a fabulous food city and we loved every minute experiencing your inventive restaurants, meeting your talented chefs and exploring your trend-shaping farms, food producers, distilleries, roasteries and more. We even did the fermentory tour and tasting. Glad we were there.
