There was celebration in the air as the week wrapped up at Catersource + The Special Event. This year’s Closing Night Celebration, held at Orlando's ICON Park, was themed “International Block Party” and gave attendees a taste of the globe before heading home. 

The event was held across ICON Park restaurant staples Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, Ole Red, and Tapa Toro. Throughout the night, attendees feasted on dishes from several continents: paella and empanadas (South America), lollipop lamb chops and shrimp on the barbie (Australia), Moroccan flatbread and chicken kabobs (Africa), tapas and arancini (Europe), and hibachi and steam buns (Asia), to name a few.

With live entertainment throughout the night, varying from restaurant to restaurant, there was dancing and dining as attendees closed out the week with coworkers, peers, and friends old and new.
