I was at Vegetarian Food Festival today!! It was really amazing to see the number of vendors/companies , who are seriously looking at catering to this lifestyle/Segment. The entrance ticket at the gate was $40, which I think is a little pricey . The price tag really did nt do any justice for the service- the floor was over crowded both with people, and the booth's were too cramped - there was not classification of type of industry or Non - profit , so I could surf only want I want to see; there were no signs or directions posted anywhere, people were allover the placing bumping into each other.. I have seen other event organized at Metropolitan Pavilion and they are of such great quality and have good utilization of space. We have really bump up the quality, if we are expecting to be taken seriously as an industry - we really need to put out best foot forward. I see an opportunity here!!
