When: March 9–12, 2020 in Las Vegas, NV at Mandalay Bay. We’re excited to be back in Las Vegas with both tradeshow and conferences under the same roof. We are also co-locating Catersource with The Special Event, with a combined tradeshow floor that will bring over 8,500 professionals and 500 suppliers together to provide an unmatched opportunity to source, network and learn in one-sensory stimulating environment.

Our audience: Our audience is comprised of top-level professionals who have been in the industry a long time, but also may bring new hires, and/or recently promoted chefs, managers, and salespeople. Attendees may be representing a small company in a big town, a big company in a small town…or a $500 million-dollar company in a densely populated metro area. But they are all at Catersource for the same reason: to be wowed with new products, new education, new ideas—and network, too.

Food and beverage trend expert Shannon Boudreau received accolades for her lively 45 F&B Trends in 45 Minutes session at Catersource 2019.

Go to for an expanded version of this notice, full of ideas and prompts to get you thinking about the kind of information you’d like to impart, and how you’d like to convey it. Then, create an account and get started with your session proposal.

The deadline for submissions is July 02, 2019.

See you at #catersource!
