The International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York MATCH! Connect Program is an experience that connects exhibitors with hand-selected, vetted decision-makers. The program efficiently matches qualified buyers with vendors like you, carrying the products they are looking to source. 

Pitch your product directly to a group (minimum 5 guaranteed) decision-makers representing multi-unit coffee shops. Buyers attending will have specifically chose to see you and hear more about your company and products. What's more, the MATCH! Connect sessions take place before the show floor opens - delivering uninterrupted time for you to make these important connections.
