Event Co-Sponsorship Details


Let our Shmoozefest Event Cosponsorships help you get face to face with more local owners, and industry VIP's this year.

Cosponsoring our quarterly Shmoozefest Networking and Tasting events are an easy, affordable and powerful way to build relationships with key buyers and influencers in the local food industry.

Join us at our free quarterly events for insightful talks from some of our market’s leading chefs, owners and operators.

Each event begins with a notable food industry guest speaker interview followed by a free "industry-only" mini trade-show, networking, raffle prizes, food and beverage samples.

Support from sponsors like you help us bring these educational, fun, networking tasting events to the industry.

Please consider one of our two cosponsor options, and reserve yours early, as they always fill up:

The $500. Gold Cosponsorship, gets your logo in the event ads appearing in Food Industry News, on flyers and event signage, PLUS a table at the event where you may engage buyers, sample food or beverage products or demonstrate your service at the event. Limited to 30 co-sponsors.

The $250. Branding Cosponsorship, gets your logo in the event ads in Food Industry News, in flyers promoting the event, and on signage displayed at the event.  

Shmoozefest Events Are Held from 5PM to 830PM, At Moretti's Banquets, 6727 N. Olmsted Street, Chicago, and attract between 200 and 400 food industry professionals from all industry segments.

Part of the reason the food and restaurant business is so successful in our market is because of great suppliers, and we make it easy for them to connect with buyers, chefs and owners.

Increase your relevance, get and stay in front of buyers with Shmoozefest Co-Sponsorships, Ads in Food Industry News, Our Eblast, Mailing and Insert Campaigns and Buyers Guide Listings, because it's always easier to sell new customers when they meet you face to face, call or contact you to buy.
