Wherever you are in New York, we sure hope you made it down to the Avenue of the Americas in Midtown Manhattan for this year’s New York Produce Show and Conference. It took place last week – between 7 to 9 November – and has been part of a long tradition “celebrating fresh,” for those in the produce industry to engage in useful networking; participate in the conference and trade show and enjoy the industry tours. Set up by Eastern Produce Council and Produce Business, it indeed marks New York’s only annual produce show and conference in the entire city of New York.
The banners were up for some time advertising this event, so if you missed it, what were you looking at? In other words, how could you miss it? It was everywhere. But you need not worry as rumor has it that the plans for next year’s show are even greater and even better.
So what can you expect at the show? Many exciting things: demonstrations by top chefs; more than 300 booths displaying their top quality produce; tours of Hunts Point – the world’s largest online food distribution center – and Philadelphia markets; sports celebrity autograph session and much more. Located on 54th Street at the spectacular New York Hilton Hotel, you can take time for some pampering during your visit as well.
So if you missed it all this year, look out for the plans for next year as it is set to be even more spectacular.
