A Look Back at 2018: Tradeshows
As 2018 comes to a close we are reminiscing on all the good times we had at industry events throughout this year. Our team was busy traveling around meeting customers and networking with potential customers in various parts of the country throughout 2018.
Our team took on Southern Exposures in Tampa, Florida in early March and then we headed back to Florida in April for the Women’s Fresh Perspectives Conference. Crystal and Natali took on Miami while networking with some great produce gals and listening to fantastic speakers including, Molly Fletcher, Colette Carlson and Gretchen Carlson. The ladies “Owned It” and are looking forward to the 2019 Conference.
Later in April John and Karl headed North to Vancouver and the CPMA Conference where it was all about Live Healthy and Eat Free! John and Karl enjoyed walking the show floor and meeting with customers. Shortly after our team headed to Palm Desert for the West Coast Produce Expo. Our team enjoyed meeting everyone who stopped by our booth. Those who stopped by got to sample our new Caulifornia™ Riced Vegetable Side Dish line. Our team had a great time in the desert.
June sent our team to Chicago for the United Fresh Conference. Early in July we headed to the happiest place on earth… that’s right Disneyland for the Fresh Produce and Floral Council SoCal Expo. This was such a fun event we are already looking forward to the 2019 show! Then July took us to Monterey. First for the Organic Produce Summit and then for the PMA Foodservice Conference. PMA Foodservice is always a fun show for the Gold Coast team. We have been a part of this conference since it originated and it’s always the perfect place to show off our newest items. This year we served up our new Sunny Superfood Salad. Our colorful blend was a hint with those that stopped by our booth. Our portion packs also got a lot of attention from those walking the show floor. We can’t wait to show you what we are working on for PMA Foodservice 2019!
We wrapped up the year at PMA Fresh Summit in Orlando. Our team had a great time at this show. The show floor was bustling with activity on each day of the expo. We celebrated our 40th Anniversary while at PMA. We served up Anniversary cupcakes featuring one of our favorite vegetables. Yes! We had chocolate and churro flavored cupcakes made with our Caulifornia™ Snow Cauliflower Rice. The sweet veggie filled treat was a hit with everyone that stopped by our booth.
2018 was filled with very informative and fun filled industry events. The Gold Coast team is already looking forward to what excitement 2019 will bring, see you all soon.
