With 350 exhibiters and 20 international pavilions, thousands of buyers from 63 countries attend this trade show and conference. The event provides an opportunity to explore and sample a large selection of regional foods and beverages from around the world targeted to the Americas.
Panels will cover topics from food retailing to the culinary arts, including Import Requirements and Export Marketing, the growing Hispanic Shopper and Retailer, and Supporting Sustainable Fisheries. There is also an "Americas Chef Competition" and an Awards Ceremony.
From Canada, the US and Caribbean islands to South America's Brazil and Columbia, local foods are represented throughout the Americas, as well as countries as far away as Malaysia, Poland and South Korea that will participate. One feature this year focuses on The Art of Peruvian Cuisine.
Among the new products highlighted: Jamaican jerk marinade, chocolate lentils, Charconut (organic coconut charcoal), liquid ginger, Satsibeli Georgian Sauce, and tropical-flavored Just Chill drinks.
Located in Miami, the biggest trade center between the US and Latin America, this show is organized by the World Trade Center Miami, a member of 94 global trade centers. Of the many food and beverage shows, this is the only one specifically targeted to the Americas.
This trade show is not to be confused with the South Beach Wine & Food Festival, February 24-27, organized by the Food Network.
