After last year’s wildly successful event, with 10,000 people in attendance, the Hot Sauce Expo 2015 returns as the premier destination in the burgeoning fiery industry, with 47 of the world’s finest artisanal proprietors. With more than 300 submissions from purveyors around the globe, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, France, Sweden, Finland, Germany, Australia and Jamaica, the New York City Hot Sauce Expo is the industry leader among the dozen hot sauce shows in the country.

An exciting addition to this year’s New York City Hot Sauce Expo is the “Hot Sauce Hall of Fame,” where 10 influential proprietors vie for a coveted spot among the world’s most prestigious hot sauce companies. We cannot forget about the most coveted awards competition in the hot sauce industry, the “Third Annual Screaming Mi Mi Awards,” returning with an esteemed judging panel of celebrity TV personalities, renowned food critics, and a handful of chefs from some of the finest restaurants New York City has to offer.
