5 Donald S Sexauer CHicago at Nash Community Collere Edition Attended : May, 2017

Loved the show, so sorry I can only get there every 6 years. It's the greatest way for someone in the industry who doesn't live in a major city to really see, touch, taste and feel what's out there. I recommend it for every one in the industry!

5 Marilyn Sessions Marketing Executive at Eisele Catering Edition Attended : May, 2017

Show was great - was our first time so appreciated the "Veterans" we went with who knew the ropes. Went Sunday and Monday - next year will go Mon and Tues. Wish they "sold" things there vs just scan my name badge.

4 Chef Gregoire McClain Chef at Secret Ingredient Caterers Edition Attended : May, 2018

When talking to Sue let her explain/scan why her product will be good for me. Tom Mohamed Ming aren't needed. Need more Vendors interested in the "small guys" like me. Caterers independents w receipts of $500k or less. Loved demonstration seminars.

5 melissa williams Co - Owner at Boltwood Ventures Edition Attended : May, 2018

Getting to and from the parking is confusing due to the venue's insufficient signage - it would be helpful for attendees if you would post additional temporary signs directing attendees
