NORWALK, Conn. — The producers of the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo and Expo Comida Latina, a trade event focused on the Hispanic retail and foodservice markets, have announced plans to hold the 2009 editions of the events together, Aug. 30 – Sept. 1, at the San Diego Convention Center. The event move to San Diego offers buyers across retail and foodservice segments expanded product and educational opportunities in both traditional and multi–cultural markets. While Expo Comida Latina primarily focuses on authentic Hispanic ingredients, prepared foods and private label products, it also includes an area of the show floor dedicated to Asian foods and flavors — All Asia Food. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the Hispanic and Asian American population will reach 48 million by the year 2010.
The Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo, sponsored by the California Restaurant Association, serves up the West Coast's best products, services and technology to the region's restaurant and foodservice professionals.
The new venue opens up an additional buying population base for the show, as it is within driving distance from Los Angeles, Arizona, Mexico and other large markets. Attendees to the event(s) will have access to both shows with their one registration.
