Gold & Silver Plate Celebration

May 18

This elegant event held during NRA Week enables manufacturers to honor the nation's top operator talent. Annually IFMA grants Silver Plate Awards in nine operator categories and honors one winner with the prestigious Gold Plate Award on the night of the Celebration. Often called "The Academy Awards of Foodservice," the Gold & Silver Plate Awards  have been considered one of the industry's most prestigious honors since its creation in 1954.

The celebration is the party of the year, featuring top chefs, live entertainment and an exquisite dinner followed by the presentation of the Gold Plate Award. This event affords the perfect opportunity to entertain operator customers.

Who Attends:

  • Leaders from every operator segment, manufacturers and industry partners
