Top 30 Food & Beverage Industry Trade Shows in USA 2022-2023

The food and beverage industry in the United States of America amounts to USD18,968 million in revenue. Revenue in the food and beverage industry in the USA is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2020-2023) of 10.0%, resulting in a market volume of USD 27,760 million by the year 2023. As we look forward to a new year of growth in the food and beverage industry in the United States, two facts are apparent.

First, there are a lot of opportunities to earn revenue, drive sales and make things happen in the market. The second and more important question is how does your marketing team aim to expand its outreach in the market before audiences of professionals and users? Given that the F&B industry is highly competitive with close but not perfect substitutes, branding has traditionally been and shall be the most critical driver of top-line and bottom-line growth.

This is because the various operations involved in F&B production are streamlined and most improvements are incremental and not innovative. So companies in F&B have to rely on branding to get their name out there and distinguish themselves from their competition.

And what is a better way than taking part in trade shows to achieve all your branding goals seamlessly? By attending the right trade show you are guaranteed to meet potential customers and business partners who would be interested to know more about your business. It will also help your brand make the best impact possible at a trade show. Once you have found the ideal trade show, it is time to find the perfect exhibit rental service. Exponents provides custom trade show displays for budgets of all sizes.
