Sorry for the delayed answer - Sam is right, the manufacturer sponsored events are invite only, and have gotten "tighter" over the years. You might try asking some of your manufacturer reps (not the broker reps, but the ones who actually work for the manufacturers). Try the big potato and protein companies.
There are no free sponsored after events hosted by the NRA. The NRA's major event outside of the trade show is the Michael E. Hurst Student Forum and the Salute To Excellence Gala.
The other types of events you mentioned are private invite only. The alcohol manufactures actually do not have the major events that you would imagine. In addition the alcohol industry is spread pretty thin because NABCA is going on the same time as our show. For a listing of events during the show check out www.restaurant.org and select the show tab.
Hope that helps.

Ready to dance in your seat? Drummer Clayton Cameron breaks down different genres of music—from R&B to Latin to pop—by their beats. A talk that proves hip hop and jazz aren't cooler than math—they simply rely on it.
While working with kids who have trouble speaking, Ajit Narayanan sketched out a way to think about language in pictures, to relate words and concepts in "maps." The idea now powers an app that helps nonverbal people communicate, and the big idea behind it, a language concept called FreeSpeech, has exciting potential.
Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use. A sparkling demo that shows how this invention could revolutionize healthcare in developing countries … and turn almost anything into a fun, hands-on science experiment.
Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
