guerinApril 24, 2009, CALGARY – The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association is pleased to announce that Bruce Guerin has been appointed manager of the Alberta Foodservice Show.


The next edition of this annual event runs Sept. 27-28, 2009, in Calgary at the Round Up Centre in Stampede Park.

Guerin produced this year’s strong B.C. Foodservice Expo, which enjoyed a double-digit increase in attendance over last year.

“Bruce is recognized for his ability to anticipate the needs of both exhibitors and attendees, and has an excellent track record of producing quality events,” says Steven Barber, CRFA’s vice-president of expositions. “In this challenging business environment, operators are looking for products and services to help them stay competitive, become more efficient and keep up with the latest trends. Under Bruce’s direction the Alberta Foodservice Show will deliver on all those fronts.”

CRFA owns and operates four trade shows for the hospitality industry: The Alberta Foodservice Show, B.C. Foodservice Expo in Vancouver, the CRFA Show in Toronto, and ApEx in Atlantic Canada. Despite the tough economy, all three shows that have been held so far in 2009 have seen an increase in attendance this year over last.

Proceeds from these trade shows help to fund CRFA’s government lobbying activities for the betterment of the foodservice industry across Canada.
