Attendee Badges:


This industry-only trade show is one of the tastiest specialty food events of the year. Where better to host such a gastronomic extravaganza of education, business building, and of course, mouthwatering samples than right here in San Francisco? Elevated dining trends like gluten-free, free-range, organic, all-natural, paleo diets, raw, vegan, and vegetarianism have long been cornerstones of Bay Area food culture. That's what makes our city so perfect for hosting industry insiders during this three-day info fest – especially in the chic, sleek rooms and suites of Hotel Nikko, just a few blocks from all the events at Moscone Center during the Winter Fancy Food Show.

One of the Largest on the West Coast

Few food trade shows compare to the sheer breadth this, featuring more than 80,000 premium specialty products of all kinds, from preserves and fresh-milled spices, to flourless cake mixes and dried gourmet wild mushrooms. In fact, offerings from a staggering total of 35 countries are among this year's 1,400 onsite exhibitors, spread out across 215,000 sqft of exhibit space. To make your visit as smooth as possible, you'll definitely want to download the Fancy Food Show app beforehand.

Informative Seminars & Outside Events

An array of valuable educational programs and events are also happening before, during, and after the show, including:

  • The Basics: The Business of Specialty Food (Jan 16th, 8 am-5 pm) – A pre-show intensive for industry newcomers.
