Better yet, Monday night set a new attendance record for our West Coast event. I’m still finalizing the list, but can confirm that we topped the 2009 attendance within the first 30 minutes of this year’s event start.
On the exhibitor side, we set another record with 21 exhibitors, including our wine and spirits sponsors, which were a big hit as always. Oregon micro-distiller Sub Rosa Spirits served its Saffron and Tarragon-infused vodkas; Patron Spirits poured tequila cocktails with it Patron Silver Tequila; and Sam’s Club used Food Fete as the national debut of its new premium Rue 33 Vodka.
I also must complement our exhibitors for helping make this event one of our smoothest-run ever. Thanks guys!
Here is some very early blog coverage from the event, and I will update this list as more posts/coverage becomes available, so check back.
