Pantry Headline Sponsorship

This 70x60 foot area features our NEW Center Stage & Restaurant Experience, where we’ll be hosting chef and bartender competitions and culinary demos, and a VIP area for our 5-star key buyer group.  

This feature will be marketed heavily to our audience as a place where they can come and truly immerse themselves in culinary experiences that both thrill and educate… together we build an amazing event experience that enables the audience to see, touch, smell, and taste the flavors that our sponsors bring to the proverbial “table”! 

  • Recognized as one of two major headline sponsors of the event as a whole, and of its main feature – The Center Stage Restaurant Experience (headliner branding in these deliverables is all positioned side-by-side with the pantry sponsor)  

  • Brought in under “partner status” to our content planning committee where your company can contribute and help shape the specific content taking place on our center stage across all three days of the event 

  • An exclusively client-produced session (can be a demonstration, chef competition, or otherwise) on the center stage – ability to contribute more where it makes sense within the structure of the production as determined by the content committee 

  • A spot for your chef or representative in our Rapid Fire chef competition and ingredient sponsor for the competition such that you can choose the ingredient that must be used by all chefs in the competition 

  • Logo and mention included on marketing deployments promoting this area as well as on static website pages where this is highlighted  

$10,000 sponsor fee + production costs including (but not limited to) labor, drayage, and shipping of products used in demos 

Supporting Product Sponsor 

Within the NEW Center Stage & Restaurant Experience, there will be food served to an engaged audience watching the chef competitions and demonstrations, being a supporting product sponsor is your chance to demonstrate your products use in a real restaurant/foodservice environment. 

A great example of a supporting product sponsor would be a furniture company outfitting the audience seating with their products, or a disposable wares company serving the samples out of their packaging product. 

There are opportunities across the board, but the product must be approved by our headline sponsors and fit with the overall experience. 

Opportunities here are extremely limited – get on our inquiry list asap!
