National Restaurant Association takes majority interest in Winsight Holdings LLC

June 2, 2021

The National Restaurant Association announced it has taken a majority interest in Winsight Holdings LLC, a leading market intelligence company that connects the restaurant, foodservice, convenience retailing and grocery industries through a portfolio of research, events, and industry news.

Winsight will continue to operate as an independent entity. Winsight's senior leadership team will remain in place to run its operations; Mike Wood is chief executive.

Winsight maintains operational ownership and execution of the National Restaurant Association Show and related assets following the 2018 formation of an equity partnership between the two organizations. The NRA Show will continue to be promoted jointly.

The next National Restaurant Association Show is scheduled to take place May 21-24, 2022, at McCormick Place in Chicago. The last two shows were canceled due to COVID-19.

“Together the National Restaurant Association and Winsight will be better positioned to support the dynamic demands of the restaurant and foodservice industry as it continues to rebuild,” said NRA president and chief executive Tom Bené.
