Pittsburgh, PA – Questex is expanding its Nightclub & Bar Show brand to the East Coast with the launch of a new foodservice show next Fall in a partnership with Exposition Development Company, Inc. (ExpoDevCo).
The Pennsylvania Foodservice Expo will launch October 23-24, 2017 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh. The show will cater to the restaurant, nightlife, hospitality and foodservice industries.
A unique feature will be a series of pavilions on the exhibit hall floor that will carry the Nightclub & Bar Show brand and provide tastings of various products. “This new partnership is extremely exciting and will result in the top minds from the restaurant, foodservice, bar and nightlife industries all coming together in one spot,” said Questex President and CEO, Kerry Gumas.
