LAS VEGAS -- Named in 2006 as one of the fastest 50 growing trade shows in North America, the World Tea Expo has sold out its exhibit space, four months in advance of the 2007 event.
The organizers of the World Tea Expo -- taking place June 9-11, 2007 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta -- claimed that it's the largest tea trade event in the world. The exhibiting companies, nearly 300 in total, represent virtually all aspects of the industry.
The Expo is enjoying major participation from growers and exporters from India, Sri Lanka, China, Taiwan, Japan, Kenya, Korea, and Nepal, as well as hundreds of tea wholesalers, equipment manufacturers, teaware manufacturers, and giftware and gourmet product distributors.
Last year's World Tea Expo buyer attendance experienced a 60 percent increase over the 2005 event. This year's early bird registration is up 38 percent, organizers.
The World Tea Expo offers an educational conference including more than 50 seminars and workshops. Other highlights include cooking-with-tea demonstrations by leading chefs in Atlanta; Japanese and Korean tea ceremonies; and a keynote presentation by The Supermarket Guru, Phil Lempert.
