Last weekend, the Aiya team had the chance to exhibit at the annual Natural Products Expo West show held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Since this show was local to us, all it took was a short 30 minute commute. From 10am-6pm, the halls of the convention center were packed with over 71,000 attendees and 2,700 exhibitors—by far the largest trade show we've ever exhibited at. And although we've participated in NPEW shows quite a few times in the past, this was definitely the largest of them all, with exhibitors taking up the entire convention center and even spilling over to the Hilton Hotel next door.

Last weekend, the Aiya team flew out to beautiful San Francisco, CA for the annual Winter Fancy Food Show.  It was held at the Moscone Convention Center, which was only a short ten minute walk from our hotel.  Instead of renting a car this time, we walked to the show every day, taking in the crisp, chilly air and gorgeous scenery. With perfect weather and an amazing turn out, this show was definitely a great way to start out our exhibition at the 2015 trade shows.

On August 16 and 17, the Aiya team visited our own backyard! No, not the parking lot, but the Los Angeles International Tea Festival! It was our third year in a row participating as a Gold Sponsor. The festival was held at its usual location, the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) in the Little Tokyo area of Downtown Los Angeles.  However, this year was a little different because the event was held during Nisei Week, an annual festival celebrating Japanese-American culture.
