GAMBLING ON FOOD
Vegas Food Expo, billed as America’s only invitational food
show will debut March 30-31, 2017, at the Gold Coast
Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
The Vegas Food Expo will bring together 100 of the
nation’s most exciting up-and-coming brands. Each day of
the show brand managers will have the opportunity to present to retail buyers, chefs, potential investors, curious foodies,
as well as allied professionals who may be in town for other
complementary shows. The first day is exclusively open to
buyers; the second day is open to buyers and all ticket holders. Admission is complimentary for buyers and $50 for general admission.
According to the show’s organizers, as larger shows
struggle to include and feature smaller brands, Vegas Food
Expo accommodates them with exhibitor packages that are
all-inclusive, costing roughly one-third that of the larger,
mainstream trade shows. In addition to the brand exhibits, a
stimulating speaker’s series hosted by Robin Leach will round
out the show.
“We’re working to introduce small and innovative compa-
nies like Frog Eyes Wasabi and Jack’s Hard Cider to a broader
audience of retailers, distributors, chefs, media and investors
than they might normally be able to reach,” says event coor-
dinator Brett Ottolenghi. “Our team sought to include ‘on the
brink’ exhibitors poised to garner greater consumer exposure
based on their originality, quality, packaging and mission.”
Vegas Food Expo promotional partners include: Food &
Beverage Magazine and Three Square, southern Nevada’s
only food bank providing food assistance to the residents of
Lincoln, Nye, Esmeralda and Clark counties.
