I would like to take this opportunity to announce that IACP (International Assoc. of Culinary Professionals) will be holding their 35th Annual Conference in San Francisco this year from April 6 – 9, 2013.
The conference attendees include chefs, restaurateurs, food and travel writers, food bloggers, editors and publishers, cookbook authors, food photographers and stylists, culinary schoolteachers, publicists, and TV personalities.
On Sunday, April 7th (12:30-4:30pm) is the Culinary Expo and Book & Blog Festival which will be open to the public for an admission fee of $25.00. It is being held in The Concourse at the SF Design Center (635 8th St at Brannen).
This high profile event is much more than just a trade show. It is a networking and educational event where exhibitors will be presenting their products and services to the most recognized, respected and influential food personalities and newsmakers in the culinary world.
In an effort to highlight the host city and support its purveyors, IACP has created a Taste of the Bay pavilion within the Expo to showcase local artisans and their wares.
There will also be in attendance national and international culinary organizations such as Slow Food, BlogHer , FDA, as well as local culinary orgs that have helped make San Francisco the culinary destination it has become: CUESA, SFPFS, WCR, La Cocina, 5 local chapters of Edibles Magazine, and Good Food Awards/ Seedling Projects.
The Book & Blog Festival gives one a chance to connect with their favorite food writers and get autographed copies of the season’s best books.
This is the perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon if you are passionate about food, and who isn’t?
Please help us promote this a not-to-be-missed event. Thank you!
