NW Food Show Discounted Booth Rate

We’re excited to announce an exclusive Seattle Made partnership with NW Food Show. 

The NW Food Show is the place to help you expand your presence in Food Service. The NW Food Show is produced by the Oregon Restaurant & Lodging Association; 50 years strong and is the only foodservice and beverage exhibition in the Pacific Northwest!  The 2020 show dates are April 19 -20 at the Portland Expo Center; conveniently located on the border of Washington and Oregon. 

The types of buyers that attend this event are from restaurants, Universities, Hospitals, K-12, convention centers, coffee shops, resorts, casinos, cruise lines, catering companies, the Military, and more. 

The special rate for Seattle Made food and beverage products within the emerging product section of the show is for younger companies looking to expand in Food Service. The regular cost for a 10 x 10 booth space is $1850 or $1950 per booth. The emerging product section has been created to help reduce those costs for vendors. The regular price for the counter spaces in the emerging product section is $550, but for Seattle Made companies we are offering $50 off per counter. Total cost is $500. This includes a draped counter and listing in the show guide. 

If there is enough of a presence of Seattle Made member products we will be able to identify the collective on the floor plan online and in the program. Here is an opportunity to stand out and utilize the power of the Seattle Made network! 

Applications open until vendor spots filled. Spots accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 

If intersted please complete the attached application and email back to Susie at susie@nwfoodshow.com.

  • Apparel
  • Children’s Goods
  • Accessories
  • Jewelry
  • Souvenirs and Regionally Inspired Gifts

Things to consider

  • Smaller sized items do well, i.e., items that can easily fit in a carry on bag.

  • Buyers will be reviewing items continually.
  • Seattle Made staff will send buyers all submitted products once a month on the last day of each month.
  • If the buyers are interested in purchasing your line, they will reach out to you directly. We do not have a sense of how long this process takes. We will update this overview when we have more information.
