I’ve received a good number of inquiries about our 2008 plans, particularly whether there will be a Food Fête media event in January in San Diego, which is during the same timeframe as the Winter Fancy Food Show. Historically, we’ve produced Food Fête during that show in San Francisco.
I’ve been weighing the pros and cons of a San Diego event for several months, including polling some west coast food editors about their plans, and have decided to skip San Diego to focus more on producing multiple Food Fêtes events in New York City during 2008.
Our summer Food Fête in NYC has become our flagship event, attracting the largest number of top editors from consumer food and lifestyle publications — the ones whom most of our exhibitors want to meet.
So in addition to our regular summer event, which is scheduled for Monday, June 30, two additional New York events are in the planning stages — one in the early spring and another in the fall.
