From the Ground Up Trade Show is a leading trade show opportunity for B.C. food and beverage processors from across the province to make connections, access multiple market channels, and grow their sales and business.
We’re expanding options at this year’s trade show to welcome even more businesses and create the best experience possible for our exhibitors. Here’s what’s new in 2024:
- 80+ booths
We want you and you and you and you to apply and have the opportunity to share your innovative food and beverage products at From the Ground Up Trade Show! We have expanded from 66 to 81 booths, including a few options for double booths.
- Choose your booth
Customize your exhibitor trade show experience by choosing your booth. Want to show off your exciting new branding to attendees as they walk in? Prefer to be in the centre of the action? Want to ensure you’re beside a brand bestie? When you register, you’ll be directed to the venue map to choose your booth.
- All alumni are welcome!
You don’t need a new product to be a return exhibitor anymore. As we have expanded the trade show, we no longer need to limit to new products only. We’re excited to welcome the best of B.C. food and bev at all stages of business with existing and new products in the market. Learn more about exhibitor eligibility.
- Focus on Sustainability
We’re featuring a sustainability exhibitor section, where we’re excited to host up to six B.C. sustainability-focused businesses that provide solutions to environmental or social challenges in the food and beverage industry.
Plus, ShareWares is back for their third year, and we’re working with them to tackle single-use plastics across the conference and show. All exhibitors will have the opportunity to work with ShareWares to swap out single-use sampling items for reusable ones!
- New award for Best Booth
One of the highlights of From the Ground Up Trade Show are the awards for Outstanding Product of the Year as voted by attendees, and we’re excited to add to that experience with a new award for Best Booth. We’ll share booth best practices and how to create an outstanding exhibitor booth in the online Trade Show Ready Workshop (included as part of your trade show registration).
One trade show. Multiple handshakes. Unlimited opportunity.
