There’s a lot to do in New Orleans. If you want to avail yourself of the city’s weekend activities, make plans to hit the Louisiana Foodservice & Hospitality EXPO on Monday, the day serious buyers make deals right on the show floor.
Traditionally a lighter attendance day, you won’t have to fight the barrage of attendees as you would on Saturday and Sunday. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can meander the aisles leisurely and really get an up close look at the hundreds of exhibiting companies, and see and hear about the latest food products, alcoholic beverage brands, equipment, technology and services to improve your restaurant’s profitability and efficiency. Exhibitors on Monday may even cut you a sweet deal, as many of them don’t want to transport product and equipment back to their headquarters.
An added incentive: If you take advantage of the LRA Self Insurer’s Fund for Workers’ Compensation (LRA SIF), you can also knock out your annual safety seminar from 10:30-11:30 a.m. located in the IDEA ZONE.
Restaurant business tends to be slower on Monday and many operators actually take the day off. With the show ending at 3 p.m., if you live in Louisiana or a neighboring state, you could be home and unpacked just in time for Monday night primetime television.
