Announcement for Utah’s Own and AACT Members- 2015 Food & Candy Expo

It is time again for the annual Food & Candy Expo, April 14 2015 at the Southtowne Expo Center.

Utah’s Own members have been given the opportunity of attending the seminars and exhibiting our products. This is totally FREE. The seminars will cover topics such as Food Safety, Extending Shelf-life, etc. The seminars are from 1-4 in the afternoon.

From 4-7, you can meet with over 100 vendors that supply your business with ingredients and packaging. This is a terrific chance to meet with suppliers and get information about different products and services. A light lunch is also provided FREE. There are lots of door prizes, too.

The opportunity to display your product and talk to other Utah’s Own members is a highlight of the day. Half of an eight-foot table, that is covered and draped, is provided for each business. You can bring signage, business cards, handouts and, of course, samples. The samples aren’t required, but are always welcome. If you need electricity, let us know ahead of time and it can be arranged. Your signs need to be freestanding, or attached to the table. Nothing can be taped to the wall. Water is not readily available.

We hope to have 20-30 Utah’s Own business’s displaying. It is a great chance to network. This is not a selling event, but rather for promotion. We expect about 400 people to attend and visit with you. You don’t have to stay at your table, but are free to roam and visit with vendors. You can set up between 12:30 and 3:30.
