The following message was shared with the Restaurant Show community on behalf of Winsight CEO, Mike Wood, and National Restaurant Association interim president/CEO, Marvin Irby:

After many weeks of monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19, including the guidance of the CDC and the Governor of Illinois, it is with great regret that we announce the unavoidable cancellation of this year’s National Restaurant Association Show, which we had planned to hold in Chicago on May 16-19.

We recognize the critical importance of the Show to the industry and we know that this will come as a disappointment to those who had planned for months to attend. While it is not the outcome we wanted, amid all the uncertainty around the COVID-19 pandemic and the immense strain it has put our industry, the safety of our attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, vendor partners and our own staff is paramount. This is our community and we all must be kept safe.

The largest single gathering of restaurant and foodservice professionals, the National Restaurant Association Show typically draws more than 40,000 exhibitors. The event celebrated its 100 anniversary in 2019.
