It will be the 7th Annual Asheville Gluten Free Expo. It is anticipated that 700 to 1,000 attendees will attend the event.
The sponsors of the event strive to put on an event that showcases quality not only national but local products. All items displayed at this event will be medically accepted from reputable sources.
Gluten-free vendors are encouraged to participate in the event. The focus for this year is to put focus on cooking and baking demonstrations. Attendees will have the opportunity to new national items found at Ingles Markets which is a local supermarket in the Asheville, NC area. Several local vendors are also invited to participate displaying their products to the gluten-free community.
Gluten free vendor’s registration fees are paid and directed to benefit the non-profit support groups so that they will have some funds for educations events and arranging speakers. Vendor’s registration deadline is March 1, 2014.
Gluten free expos are a smart way to attend and take advantage of free tastings, coupons, cooking demos, product samples and get to know representatives of different vendors.
The last gluten-free expo my children, wife and I attended in New Jersey about 6 months ago was amazing. We spent over 3 hours walking the show. We sampled delicious cakes, pastries, pizza, soups, crackers, chips and even sandwiches. They had 3 companies displaying gluten-free beers. I was able to taste them. Let me tell you. It was great. Most importantly, we received several coupons which helped in purchasing gluten free product at the supermarket.
If you lived around the Asheville, NC area, I hope you are able to attend this event.
