Trade Show Vendors
All potential vendors must apply to have your products juried by our industry expert panel. The jury process will take place in September where the Panel will review and select the final vendors to participate in the show. On September 30th, all trade show vendors will be announced. Final payment deadline for the show tables will be on October 31st, 2019. Our 3-step process is outlined below.
Do you want to be in the From the Ground Up 2020 trade show but feel like you’re not totally ready? Perhaps your packaging is incomplete, you don’t believe your product costs are in line for selling to retail, or you feel a lack of confidence around presenting your products to retailers?
Don’t worry! Go ahead and apply, because this year for the first time, Good to Grow is offering six 4-hour workshops focused on preparing food and beverage processors who have applied for the trade show to be retail ready.
Our Application Process:
STEP ONE: Apply here to send your application to see if your product fits the criteria for the show. The show focus is on innovation and locally processed food and beverages and representative of food processors from all areas of the province.
STEP TWO: Once your initial application has been reviewed, you may be asked to submit product samples and a sell sheet prior to the jury date.
STEP THREE: you are either accepted to the show or you are conditionally accepted to the show if your products require more fine tuning to be ready for retail.* Vendors that are conditionally accepted will be invited to join the From the Ground Up Cohort and learn all of the details in perfecting your product and make it 100% retail ready! Thanks to the generous support of our sponsors, both the cost of the cohort and trade show are reduced well below the prices of a regular food industry trade show.
We will send you a letter within 10 days of your initial application submission with further information.
Applications are now closed. Please sign up for our newsletter to receive information and updates.
Show cost: $350
Cohort cost: $300
*Vendors that are not required to join the cohort are welcome to join any and all sessions.
