Chicago—The National Restaurant Association and Lebhar-Friedman’s Nation’s Restaurant News
announced Friday during the annual NRA Show that the two organizations are in final negotiations for an exclusive multiyear partnership. Under the terms of the pending agreement, the NRA would be able to use NRN
and its related properties to distribute branded information on the association, and NRN
would extend its reach to the NRA’s members.
“Beginning in June with NRN’s Show Wrap-up edition, NRA-generated news and information will be featured prominently in Nation’s Restaurant News,” NRA CEO Dawn Sweeney said in a statement. “Together, we’ll be able to reach hundreds of thousands of additional industry professionals to tell them the NRA story and the benefits of membership.”
