We've Announced the Sessions and Exhibitors for the 2014 Food & Travel Expo
We've released the list if Edible Sessions and Tasting Pavilion Exhibitors for the 2014 Taste Trekkers Food & Travel Expo.
In a word? Yum!
The Edible Sessions are a little slice of awesome for hardcore foodies. If you didn't make it to last year's Expo (see the video here), here's how they work:
Each session is 45-minutes long and led by an expert: executive chefs, restauranteurs, culinary professors, farmers, etc. These in-depth discussions give you an opportunity to dig into the background of different dishes. And, of course, you'll have an opportunity to sample the food.
Each session focuses on cuisine from a different region. This year, we have sessions focusing on:
- Cape Cod
- New Zealand
- Wood-Fired Pizza
There are a total of twelve sessions. We run three rounds of four sessions, which means that everyone who comes to the Expo will have the opportunity to attend three sessions.
When you purchase your tickets, you will be asked which sessions you want to attend. We recommend purchasing tickets early to make sure that you get assigned to the session you want.
Hope & Main Tasting Pavilion Exhibitors
After the sessions, everybody heads back into the Grand Ballroom for the Hope & Main Tasting Pavilion. where you can sample food and drink from dozens of restaurants, artisanal food producers, wineries, and breweries. Hope & Main, the brand new kitchen incubator in Warren, Rhode Island, will have several of their culinary entrepreneurs sampling.
NOTE: If you are coming in from out of town, we recommend that you book your hotel room soon. Providence can fill up on the weekend. We have set up room blocks at several local hotels, but those rooms will be released to the public on September 10th, so act now.
