The Personal Touch
Many attendees participated in one-on-one meetings with exhibitors, allowing them to further discuss their business needs and priorities.
Attendees were able to see a variety of new product launches to help stimulate their creative processes.
The Tasting Bar allowed event participants to see, touch and taste some of the latest functional food and beverages presented by the exhibitors. The feature area was popular with visitors because they found it novel and engaging, and it helped them narrow down their search for ingredients.
