Texas co-ops are hosting a foodservice Expo
( September 29 - October 1, 2020 )

Mark your calendar and join us! Texas co-ops are hosting a foodservice Expo – September 29, 30 and October 1, 2020!

On behalf of the Texas Co-ops Collaborative Group (see list below), we are sending you this notification and personal invite to participate as an exhibitor in our “100% virtual” food show event! This “expo” is for child nutrition food products and non-food foodservice related products (small-wares, equipment, software, chemicals, etc…). Our focus this year is “making it work” with a blended model of serving students as well as new ideas with the tried-and-true and new products too. We have attached the agreement form and below are a few highlights. Attached is a Power Point template that we would love for you to use if you want to provide or use a Power Point presentation.

  • This is a 3-day virtual event using the Whova platform with live sessions, meetups, special guest speaker, and blocked times for exhibitor booths
  • We have a number of limited sponsor spots so read through the agreement carefully because all sponsor spots are on a first-come-first serve basis (contract and payment must be received first)
  • We will be showcasing the Gold sponsors and some of our superstar districts with live sessions on each day
  • Representatives from USDA, ACDA and TDA will each be doing live one-hour update sessions
  • The fee is completely reasonable
  • This is a “don’t miss” event and completely new venture for all of us, but we are all very excited!

We hope you will join us as we bring our best to our Texas schools in light of COVID!
