GOVINO—a market leader and design innovator in shatterproof drinkware—continues to pioneer the industry of quality “go anywhere” glassware with new and improved product offerings at this year’s NRA Show (National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show) taking place in Chicago from May 20—23. Expanding on the current collection of wine, beer, flute and decanter drinkware crafted with the brand’s signature ergonomic thumb notch, GOVINO (booth 8839) is introducing contemporary developments such as a dishwasher safe 14 oz. whiskey glass alongside digital advances in specialty printing that will launch this summer and includes customization at any volume and in a multitude of colors and designs.

“Our new system will also have an online presence so that any customer—from business retailers and wholesalers to brides and party planners—can easily upload imagery and personally customize GOVINO glassware to their exact specifications,” says Paulette Estrella GOVINO’s Director of Marketing. “The possibilities are endless—users will have the ability to combine multi-color images, graphics, and text. It’s a useful tool that will enhance and give a little extra personality to any occasion or celebration.”

A recent recipient of the GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design, GOVINO is renowned for its durability while maintaining the look and performance comparable to fine crystal stemware. From clients such as The French Laundry, Shake Shack, Regal and Harkins Cinemas to hundreds of wine and spirit brands as well as events and festivals across the country and globally, custom printed GOVINO glassware has become a staple to organizations looking to elevate any beverage experience, especially because of its durable, reusable, and collectible characteristics.

The National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show, the largest annual gathering of foodservice professionals in the United States, returns to McCormick Place in Chicago from May 20—23, 2017. Also back this year is BAR (Beverage Alcohol for Restaurants), the only beverage-alcohol event exclusively focused on the restaurant and hospitality industries. BAR 17 is runs in conjunction with NRA Show and runs from May 21—22, 2017. Both events showcase the latest products, services, trends, innovation, education and best practices and combine to attract over 67,000 attendees and visitors from all 50 states and over 100 countries.
