"We are thrilled to have the Fancy Food Show recognized by BizBash as not only a top 100 event in New York, but as number two in the food space," said Specialty Food Association President Phil Kafarakis. "The specialty food scene is thriving, and our show continues to attract top buyers eager to make new connections with food artisans and entrepreneurs."

The Summer Fancy Food Show is one of the largest marketplaces in North America devoted exclusively to specialty foods and beverages. BizBash ranked the event second of the six Food and Restaurant Industry events included in their list.

BizBash considered a number of factors when selecting and ranking their top 100, including economic impact, buzz, innovation, and the event’s prominence within the communities it intends to serve.

Beth Kormanik, Executive Editor, BizBash"So many high-profile events call New York home, and to choose the best from this diverse landscape is no easy task," said BizBash Executive Editor Beth Kormanik. "Today's top events reflect a sharply honed sense of mission, thoughtful production, and engaged guests—factors that all contribute to their success."

The next Summer Fancy Food Show will be held June 25-27, 2017 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The show will feature over 80,000 products from over 2,500 exhibitors and 45 countries. This year’s highlights include a 65 anniversary celebration featuring a historic overview of the specialty food industry, and a groundbreaking exhibit dedicated to the future of food.
