LAKE PLACID — Approximately 1,500 restaurant industry professionals are expected to attend the Renzi Food Show at the Conference Center at Lake Placid on Tuesday, April 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The invitation-only annual event is generating overnight bookings at area hotels on Monday, April 29 and Tuesday, April 30.

As in past years, it is expected that attendees will not only be participating in the food show, but will also be visiting local businesses during those two days. Many attendees are expected to arrive Monday evening and will be participating in the Renzi Dine Around Program, and therefore eating at local establishments.

“With the conference center’s central location in the Lake Placid village, attendees can easily browse Main Street shops and experience the great restaurants. Hopefully it will expose new future leisure travelers to our spectacular destination,” said Sarah Wheeler, ROOST’s director of sales.

The attendance at previous years’ shows exceeded 1,000 people. ROOST is alerting local businesses to the potential extra foot traffic during the event.
