2016 Exhibitor Registration & Information
The National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show is the largest and longest-running trade show in the nation for fiery foods & BBQ. Whether you’re an established name in hot sauce, or a start-up looking for exposure, the Fiery Foods Show is guaranteed to help boost your sales and make people aware of your products. Many of our exhibitors come back year after year, and they tell us repeatedly that our show is the best one of the year.
The National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show is a unique business opportunity, providing both trade and consumer exposure. This show offers both volume selling to qualified wholesale buyers, as well as the chance to do market research, raise consumer awareness of your products, and to conduct retail sales during designated consumer hours.
Connect with Buyers. We have dedicated trade hours for qualified wholesale buyers every day of the show, and many buyers make their purchasing decisions based on the products they see at the Fiery Foods Show. Our aggressive promotion of the show brings the buyers out every year, and our buyer list keeps expanding.
Great Media Exposure. There are many opportunities for media exposure. In previous years, all major network affiliate stations in the area attended the show, interviewing manufacturers and videotaping dozens of products. The show has been covered by major newspapers such as The Wall Street Journal and the San Francisco Chronicle.

MBendi Directory Entry
The latest scam going to our exhibitors is from MBendi Information Services, Cape Town, South Africa, with the subject heading “MBendi Directory Entry : National Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show.” DO NOT respond to this solicitation, as it has nothing whatsoever to do with Sunbelt Shows, Inc., which produces the show.
You may receive a solicitation from Expo-Guide, using our corporate name and listing “Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show.” The top says you got a free listing, but the fine type at the bottom says that you will be billed $1571 a year for three years. Although www.expo-guide.com does exist, this is obviously a SCAM. The letters originate from Austria and Mexico. Do not fall for this scam, as three of our exhibitors have.
It has come to our attention that FAIRGuide, which uses very unfair selling practices, is targeting our exhibitors from previous shows and our upcoming shows.
If you have participated in any of our shows in previous years, or are due to participate in the next National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show, you are likely to be targeted.
Under no circumstances should you sign anything indicating you will become part of an “exhibition directory” that will list your company’s products and services, if the letter is sent to you by FAIRGUIDE or CONSTRUCT DATA VERLAG of Vienna, Austria or tradefairguide/Blue Ark Inc of Japan. Our company, Sunbelt Shows, Inc. is not connected to FAIRGuide in any way.
In the fine print of this letter you will find a charge of some USD $851, that will be charged to you annually for a period of three years, for a service that could be of no possible value to you.
