For 66 years the IFMA Gold & Silver Plate Awards have been the industry’s most iconic foodservice celebration. This historic annual event is where distinguished industry peers mix, mingle and lavish praise on the most notable operator achievements.

Join us at Chicago’s historic Union Station as we celebrate and honor operators in up to nine categories who have gone above and beyond to set a new standard of excellence. And at the end of the night, one Silver Plate Award winner will be named the 2020 Gold Plate recipient for overall industry excellence, the most prestigious award in our industry.

IFMA is proud to partner with three other organizations in what has become THE Awards night for foodservice. Throughout the evening, individuals will be honored through the National Restaurant Association “Legends Award”, the Specialty Food Association “Sofi Award”, and the Women’s Foodservice Forum (WFF) “Women in Manufacturing Award”.
