Live Oven Demos With Leo Spizzirri at the 2017 NRA Show

The National Restaurant Association (NRA) is the largest foodservice trade association (by membership) in the world.  If you are in the food business, the NRA is THE group to join.  They do so much for their members – from being proactive about financial and regulatory mandate proposals that affect the industry, to helping members with networking, education, and research that will ensure the success of their business.

Every year, the NRA hosts an intense 4-day tradeshow featuring anything and everything there is to know, see, taste, learn, feel and sell in the foodservice industry.  This year’s show is going to be held at McCormick Place in one of the biggest cities in America’s heartland – Chicago, IL from Saturday, 20 May through Tuesday, 23 May.  This is a must-attend show for anyone in the business.  Tickets are free for NRA members and only $109 for non-NRA members – well worth the price, as this show is HUGE!

When you register for the show, make sure you take note of Booth #9550 in the Lakeside Center Hall. That’s where Forno Bravo is going to be.  We recommend taking advantage of the show’s mapping tool.  Then, go to the our Eventbrite page to register for one of Chef Leo’s live demonstrations of one of our commercial pizza ovens.

Chef Leo’s demos are free to those with tickets to the NRA show, but because space is limited, we prefer you register in advance.

Show times for Leo’s Live demos are:

Saturday, May 20 Sunday, May 21 Monday, May 22 Tuesday, May 23
10:30AM – 11:30AM 10:30AM- 11:30AM 10:30AM- 11:30AM 11:00AM – 12:00PM
