Tasty Expo is a unique food show experience that will be held in Kansas City, May 18-20th 2018 at the Overland Park Convention Center. This is a hybrid trade show and consumer tasting show.
Friday, May 18
This first day will be dedicated to the food and beverage industry. After everyone is moved in, that evening we will host a networking event for our exhibitors with a live band and complimentary food and beverage. It will be a great casual way for exhibitors to make connections to further grow their companies and reach their future marketing goals.
Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20
The rest of the weekend will be open to consumers for food and beverage sampling and product sales. There will be plenty of interactive activities for the consumers including a barbecue contest sanctioned by the Kansas City BBQ Society, a food stage with cooking demos and educational speakers and a beverage stage with presentations from local Mixologists, Sommeliers and Cicerones. This is a great opportunity to get your products in the mouths of 20,000 consumers. Ask us about how you can get involved in Restaurant Row!
If you are a restauranteur, local chef, BBQ competitor, sommelier, cicerone, or just someone who wants to be a part of Tasty Expo please reach out to us and we would love to chat!
