Happy Hour at the Trade Show Kick-Off Reception

Start the New Year off right and give attendees one more reason to stop by your booth. At the Trade Show Kick-Off Reception, held Wednesday, January 4, from 5:00pm-6:30pm, exhibitors have the opportunity to provide refreshments such as beer, wine, and cocktails at their booth. This is a great way to invite attendees to your booth and start a conversation that can continue throughout Potato Expo. View the Moscone West Center’s catering services menu here.

Each attendee receives two drink tickets with their registration to use during the Kick-Off Reception and will be served passed hors d’oeuvres. Booth refreshments will supplement this and must be served within your booth and not in the aisles.
