AFPD’s longest running show welcomed over 1,000 attendees who were looking for products to fill their shelves for the months ahead. It all happened at the 31st Annual Innovations Buying Show, which was held for the first time at Shenandoah Country Club in West Bloomfield. The event, on Thursday, April 16th, filled the hallways and ballrooms as suppliers and retailers showcased the industry’s latest products and services.
This year’s setting allowed for a more personal touch and kept the attendees mingling as they made their way through the display areas. The Innovations Buying Show continues to be the best opportunity for buyers to see tomorrow’s hot-seller, today. Allowing retailers to sample food and beverages on this large of a scale, is invaluable when it comes to deciding which new products to carry in stock.
AFPD continued its outreach in giving back to the community, a Trade Show tradition, and donated 6500 lbs. of food to Forgotten Harvest to wrap-up the event.
AFPD’s Innovations Buying Show, once again, paired people with products at special show-only prices and it continues to push the industry forward. Mark your calendars and don’t miss your opportunity to attend one or both of our fall buying shows! AFPD’s 17th Annual Holiday Food and Beverage Buying Show is being held on Thursday, September 24th and our 6th Annual West Michigan Holiday Food & Beverage Buying Show is on Thursday, October 1st.
