RC Show 2022 Returns to the Live Stage


After over a year of COVID-19 hardships placed on the foodservice and hospitality sectors, the end is finally in sight. As the voice of the industry and host of Canada's largest foodservice and hospitality trade event, Restaurants Canada has officially announced RC Show 2022 will return with a dynamic, in-person and virtual broadcast, three-day event held at the Enercare Centre from February 27 - March 1. 

Restaurants Canada is preparing for a full in-person comeback to reignite the industry by combining an in-person trade show along with nationally broadcasted conference sessions that attendees can attend virtually. This will be paired with an enhanced buyers program linking buyers directly to the industry suppliers to conduct business even more efficiently. 

Attendees can expect to find the industry’s top brands and suppliers at the live show as well as programming from global thought leaders who will be assembled to discuss key industry issues to support the relaunch of the industry. 

"People are excited to get back to normal and attend in-person events. We firmly believe live shows are key for the hospitality industry. However, lessons from our successful 2021 virtual event will have us expanding our online content offering, allowing the industry to continue to learn, connect and grow from anywhere in the world," says Todd Barclay President & CEO, Restaurants Canada.

There is no denying that the foodservice industry was one of the hardest hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Navigating through uncharted territory and consistently adjusting to stay innovative through tight restrictions has placed anyone connected to the industry in some of the most challenging circumstances of their careers. RC Show 2022 will look to unlock the door to new opportunities and provide valuable tools to improve and strengthen business operations, all in support of next year's "REVIVE” theme.

"Industry interactions and invaluable content will now be available both during and after the RC Show to ensure consistent support for foodservice professionals. “Our Buyers Program and virtual conference platform proved to be extremely successful in 2021 and is now a must have tool for the industry. While we plan for a highly anticipated live trade show with competitions and events, we also want to ensure we can provide key content to help operators from coast to coast, for those that may not be in a position to travel," adds Barclay.

In addition to the ONLINE integrations mentioned above, here's a taste of what else you can expect at the LIVE RC Show 2022:

"RC Show is excited to bring the industry together. There is no better time to elevate and promote the health and wellbeing of our sector as a whole; therefore, we officially invite chefs, baristas, bartenders, sommeliers, foodservice operators, distributors, brokers, retailers and buyers to save the date February 27 to March 1 to start a new chapter of growth for our industry," adds Barclay.

With both live and virtual conference elements, RC Show 2022 aims to reignite and revive the Canadian foodservice and hospitality industry through its new and improved ONLINE content strategy, buyers program and face-to-face business connection opportunities.
