Where & When: May 2 to 5, 2021 in Anaheim, CA at the Anaheim Convention Center.  You can immerse yourself in a spectacular event that encompasses everything catering and event related.

Our Audience: Our audience is in the business of helping people celebrate the most important milestones in their lives. They are on and off-premise, executing private parties to multiple day festivals, hiring food trucks, and ensuring a safe and successful day for all. Those in the event industry are some of the hardest working people in business today. Our audience is comprised of top-level professionals who have been in the industry a long time, but also may bring new hires, and/or recently promoted planners, managers, and salespeople. Attendees may be representing a small company in a big town, a big company in a small town or a $500 million dollar company in a densely populated metro area. But they are all at The Special Event Show for the same reason: to be wowed with new products, new education, new ideas—and network, too.
