Last week the Aiya team flew out to Las Vegas for the Supply Side West Expo being held at the Sands Expo Convention Center. The showroom floor was open for two days, November 14th and 15th.  The show felt rather short because we are used to attending shows that are either three or four days long.

This year around World Tea East thought it be best to spice things up and do something new by pairing up with the Atlanta Foodservice Show. Usually World Tea East is held in Philadelphia but this time we had the opportunity to head down south. Aiya usually does not attend shows in the southeast region so it was a nice change of pace to do a show in Atlanta.

Last week we exhibited at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Show which was held at the Los Angeles Convention Center this year. It's a quaint show geared toward businesses in the foodservice industry like restaurants and cafes. The show itself ran three days from August 18th-20th. It's always nice doing local shows because you get to meet other local business, or even put faces to names of local companies you've been doing business with.

The Aiya team just recently exhibited at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show in Chicago from May 18th-21st. This show is the biggest restaurant show in the US. It attracts a lot of attendees and has a lot of high profile presenters. Some of the presenters this year included; Howard Schultz, Anthony Bourdain, Robert Irvine, etc. This show was a big moment for us because we debuted a new product that we hope to finalize and have out in the marketplace in the next couple of months, our Matcha 2 Go product.

The Aiya team recently attended the IFT 2012 trade show in Las Vegas. The IFT trade show is one of the big ingredient trade shows in the US. The show itself was pretty busy for an ingredient show, especially on the first day. We almost could not keep up with making samples for all the people that were stopping by our booth!

This past weekend James from team Aiya America attended the Aspen Food & Wine Classic. This was a last minute decision as we were invited to attend this show. We were first weary if it was worth the Aspen Food & Wine Classic because we have not attended a show like it before. Also we didn't know what kind of traffic we would attract during the show. Would it be slow, or busy? The show seem to be well worth it.
