Restaurants Canada’s RC Show, Canada’s largest food service and hospitality trade show, has received Canada’s first accreditation as an international event accredited by UFI, the Global Association of the Exhibition Industry.
This official accreditation communicates globally that RC Show meets the highest standards for quality in exhibitions and trade shows.
“We’re happy to recognize RC Show as a UFI Approved International Event,” says Kai Hattendorf, UFI CEO and managing director. “The certification confirms that Restaurants Canada fullfils the relevant criteria international buyers and sellers are looking for at an exhibition—most importantly that the key metrics of the show have been audited and confirmed independently.”
An in-depth external audit is necessary to become an internationally recognized event. BPA Worldwide was selected to audit key aspects of the show.
“By choosing to become audited by an independent third party, the RC Show is providing exhibitors, sponsors and other stakeholders full transparency of domestic and international counts for exhibitors and visitors to a global standard,” says BPA Worldwide Vice President Tim Peel.
With Restaurants Canada celebrating its 75th anniversary, it is an exciting stage for the RC Show and the organization.
“With this globally recognized designation we are opening the doors for countries from around the globe to connect and do business with Canada’s food service and hospitality industry,” comments Shanna Munro, president and CEO of Restaurants Canada. “This allows us to put Canada on the map and by doing so we can bring international products to Canada that can help operators grow their businesses.”
With its new designation, Restaurants Canada announces registration is now open for RC Show 2020, which is scheduled to take place March 1-3 in downtown Toronto.
