Salon Of Culinary Art » Registration Info
Dear Prospective Exhibitor
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to participate in the 147th Annual Salon of Culinary Art. This event will be held in conjunction with HX - The Hotel Experience Trade Show, on Sunday, November 8th through Tuesday, November 10th at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, 11th Avenue at 34th Street, New York, NY.
As some of you already know, the Annual Salon of Culinary Art is a judged exhibition featuring numerous food categories where each exhibitor can showcase their artistic and creative skills at various levels of expertise. During the salon experience, you will be among international members of the hospitality industry, thousands of whom will view your unique craftsmanship and talent. Why not avail yourself of such enormous exposure for a nominal entry fee.
