The AFEHC will also have its own information booth (South Hall, booth 3562) at the 2018 NRA Show. The Association’s promotional activities include the publication of a promotional brochure on the products of the Spanish companies participating in the Show that has been sent to the distributors of foodservice equipment registered for the Show and will also be distributed at the Association’s booth during the Show.
