An edited exhibit division of statement-making products for hotel, resort and casino food and beverage operations will debut at the 2011 International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show® (IHMRS), November 12-15, at New York City's Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The Hotel F&B Zone will feature manufacturers and distributors of bar equipment; beer, wine and spirits; software and technology; buffet ware and catering accessories; and specialty food and beverages.
"The Hotel F&B Zone was created to accommodate the sourcing needs of food and beverage executives from across the country who attend the IHMRS annually, offering them a defined, exclusive area in which to shop for products," said Lynn White, show manager. "This includes executives from casinos, hotels, military lodging, and resorts."
Educational programming specific to the evolving hotel food and beverage industry will complement the Hotel F&B Zone, including the Hospitality Leadership Forum Keynote Luncheon on Saturday, November 12. "Thought for Food: How Celebrity Chefs Cook up Business" will feature chefs Daniel Boulud of Dinex Group, Floyd Cardoz of the North End Grill and Dan Kluger of ABC Kitchen, addressing how smart hoteliers are turning poorly performing food operations into culinary hotspots at hotels and resorts around the world. Registration for the Hospitality Leadership Forum is available through IHMRS attendee registration for $139 per person, and includes admission to exhibits November 13-15.
On Sunday and Monday, related seminars will discuss "Upgrading After the Downturn: Maximizing Hotel F&B Renovations," and "Missed Opportunities in Hotel Food and Beverage Operations." Both seminars have been developed by the American Hotel & Lodging Association Food & Beverage Committee, and are offered complimentary with Show registration.

With the tabletop world perhaps being a bit "over-showed" it seems like management of of this show is innovating and working hard to give both their exhibitors and attendees more than their monies worth. We're planning on being there....are you?
Revol.....nice people. Fantastic products. Get some soon.
We don't spend a lot of time pushing other folks blogs, but once in a while you stumble across one that ... well, is pretty cool. Such is A Life Worth Eating. Check it out and you'll realize that Adam Goldberg's photography is pure...a little raw....but that's really the beauty. No food stylists needed.
If I were looking to get some great shots of my tabletop items or my favorite dishes...I'd probably get in touch with Adam and offer to buy dinner.
I don't know Adam Goldberg. Never met him. So...all I can say is his images tell the story of eating with your eyes first. Think you will enjoy his site.

Jeff Weinstein from HotelsMag.com writes that Marriott International on Thursday launched a website dedicated to its F&B outlets around the world. Its new Restaurant & Bar Showcase tells the stories of some of the company’s most popular restaurants and bars, including those done in partnership with celebrity chefs such as Laurent Tourondel and Kerry Simon, as well as some of their self-operated, home grown concepts.
Perhaps this is one more tangible sign that - with an increased focus on F&B as a brand differentiator for the lodging sector - that tabletop with also have a renewed focus. There are some great new tabletop products that will assist with elevating the Marriott guest dining experience. We look forward keeping an eye on their success and watching for Marriott to become a dining destination in these locations.
Well Done, Marriott. Well Done.

It seems like lifetime ago, but this was the mug we did for The James Beard Foundation Birthday Celebration back n May of 1997. Lots has happened through the years, but The James Beard Foundation remains as one of the key culinary organizations in the world.
We also produced a variety of commemorative charger plates for the Foundation "back in the day" all designed by some incredibly talented designers. And to think it really all started with a handshake and a commitment with our friend, Peter Kump.
Check out The James Beard Foundation. You'll be glad you did.
