The annual IFMA Gold & Silver Plate Awards Celebration enables the industry to honor the nation's top operator talent. Through a rigorous jury process, IFMA grants Silver Plate Awards in up to 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. 

Who Attends:

  • Leaders from every operator segment, manufacturers and industry partners
  • Industry legends, including members of the Gold & Silver Plate Society

 

What Attendees Are Saying: 

“The Gold and Silver Plate Awards are a great recognition for operators in the industry. It’s one of the very few venues manufacturers have to recognize our important business partners and provides the opportunity for us to give back to our industry.”
