Although the NA Sales Restaurant Show already occurred back in May, that doesn't mean other events aren't happening! Our sister company Mutual Trading had their restaurant show over the weekend at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena and several of us at NA Sales were invited to attend and take part in the festivities. This time, we got to see and enjoy the event from the eyes of an attendee and not a planner. Our time was unfortunately short due to travel, but we still had a chance to experience quite a bit!
Representatives from various breweries, food producers, and suppliers from all over assembled to provide a great atmosphere for tastings and product demonstrations. Mr. Hirano, president of Tsukiji Masamoto was also present providing his famous knife engraving services. Several seminar panels were also scheduled for a variety of subjects including how to use trehalose, how to design drink menus, tips for creating cocktails, information about craft beers, and how to sharpen knives more effectively.
It's always interesting and informative to see an event as a visitor. We all enjoyed ourselves and saw some great ideas that we may adapt for our events as well!
