Yes, it’s official. The Chicago Bar Shop Team will be returning to the annual National Restaurant Association Show that takes place at McCormick Place from May 21st through the 24th. This year marks the end of the two-year hiatus (due to COVID-19) and finally, Chicago Bar Shop is back to show what we do best: bringing you innovative hospitality solutions that bring your establishment into the future of what it means to be in the hospitality industry.
The last two years have not been easy on anyone, especially those of us who are in the hospitality industry. “Uncertainty” of what’s to come next plagued us all. We think it’s high time to say enough is enough. It’s time to step up, reimagine everything that we are and renew what we think. We need to be flexible and adaptable to the world because that is the only way to stay ahead.
The National Restaurant Association show is the largest show of its kind in the Western Hemisphere. This year, they are expecting over 1,300 vendors from all 50 states and 110 countries. The NRA show has been the go-to resource for industry professionals since 1919, bringing together people, ideas, products, solutions, and information that make up the entire domestic and international industry program.
This year will mark the fifth year of our attendance at the show and we are bigger and better than ever before! Our bars speak for themselves, but today, there are more ways than ever to connect with consumers – and engaging them visually and dynamically can have a real, lasting business impact.
Chicago Bar Shop will be available to meet you at booth #643 located just off the escalators in the South Building. Our bar designers and hospitality technology experts will be around throughout the show – stop by and say hi! We look forward to meeting you.
As an added bonus to participating in the NRA Show, we, Chicago Bar Shop, will be hosting an after party at the Irish Nobleman Pub in West Town, Saturday, May 21st, 7 pm-9 pm. There will be handcrafted cocktails and delicious scratch-made hors d’oeuvres for your pleasure. We hope to see you there!
