IDDBA Wraps Up with Success
With 8,596 registered attendees and representatives from over 50 countries, IDDBA’s Dairy-Deli-Bake 2013 was an event to remember.
The Orange County Convention Center in Orlando hummed with conversation as industry professionals crowded the aisles, sampling, networking, selling, and connecting. The conference was attended by leading retail buyers, merchandisers, executives, food manufacturers, brokers, distributors, and other top industry professionals. The original exhibit floor sold out early and three expansions were added to accommodate the demand for exhibit space, bringing the booth total to 1740 booths and 705 exhibiting companies. The additional booth space sold within days and IDDBA had to turn away companies who wanted to exhibit, according to a release.
Hundreds of new products made their debut at the Expo – there were more than could fit in the New Product Showcase display. New product booth signs and buttons alerted attendees to the exhibitors who featured items in the Showcase.
Voni Woods, chairman of the Board of IDDBA and senior director of deli, Giant Eagle, Inc., presented the IDDBA President’s Award to Steve Dragoo, President, Solutions Consulting, Inc at the Awards Banquet. Dragoo was honored for his dedication to helping businesses improve their customers’ experience, his company and the industry.
