We are looking for advice from the board on which Trade Shows that we should participate in.

We are a Bag in a Box syrup energy drink company. Currently, we haven't had to do any shows but we would like too.

Thanks for the help and guidence.

Check out the Restaurant & Bar show in Vegas or NACS (National Association of Convenience Stores).

I write for Nightclub & Bar Magazine and I also administer their site. We have been attending this show for over 25 years.

Are there any other shows besides this one and IBDEA?

Go to the Exotic Dancer show in August. Strip club owners will love your inexpensive blue stuff.

I would not recommend NACS. There are a lot of people there but very few decisions made. NACS is a good place to introduce a new brand if you are already in distribution with a large distribution network but you will get interest from 25-30 single unit operators which won't help you very much.

You are better served to work with a Alcoholic Beverage distribution system. Like Glazers or Southern Wine and Spirits
