The National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show is the largest and longest-running trade show of its kind in the nation. Whether you’re an established name, or a start-up looking for exposure, the Fiery Foods Show can help boost your sales and raise awareness of your products. Many of our exhibitors come back year after year, and they tell us repeatedly that our show is one of the best.
The National Fiery Foods & Barbecue Show is a unique business opportunity, providing both trade and consumer exposure. The Show offers both volume selling to qualified wholesale buyers as well as opportunities to conduct market research, raise consumer awareness, and sell your product to the general public.
Connect with Buyers
We have dedicated trade hours for qualified wholesale buyers, 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 buyers out every year, and our buyer list keeps expanding.
There are many opportunities for media exposure. In previous years, all major network TV affiliate stations in the area attended the show, interviewing manufacturers and videotaping dozens of products. In addition, The Show has been covered by major media such as CBS, The Wall Street Journal, the San Francisco Chronicle, and National Geographic.
If you’re a Scovie Award winner, you don’t want to miss this opportunity to talk with buyers and make the most of your Scovie win. A booth at the Show means you’re serious about your business and gives a professional impression to buyers.

Frequently Asked Questions:
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 is unrelated to 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 a SCAM. The letters originate from Austria and Mexico.
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.
You should not 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. Sunbelt Shows, Inc. is not connected to FAIRGuide in any way.
In the fine print of this letter you will find a charge of $851, that will be charged to you annually for a period of three years.
If you receive an email with the below subject lines, don’t be fooled. We do not release our Attendee list and it is not published or printed anywhere.
