I love it- it's a place to meet the products and the people, in a place that is focused on sharing information about both. Well worth the trip. Fancy Food Show is online and they often give discounts if you register early.
The Fancy Food Show is the finest every year. I enjoy visiting all the booths particularly all the ones devoted to chocolate. There is much to see, sample and read about. Highly recommended. Buy your ticket before June 1st as it costs $35. After that it is $60. Your pass allows you to go for all three days. On the last day, booths that have come from abroad give away a lot of their samples as it is too expensive to take back on the plane.
