2016 Event Highlights
We thoroughly enjoyed Taste of Colorado and hope that you did, too. What the three of us appreciate the most about the annual show is the chance to catch up with longtime friends who are also customers. While reminiscing after the show closed, we exchanged comments on how wonderful it is to see that our customers are thriving – not just surviving.
This year, there was worry on our minds for those affected a week prior by Hurricane Matthew. Several of our regular guests couldn’t make the trip because of a need to recover both physically and emotionally from the devastating storm. It’s also bittersweet every October when we make special note of folks who have or will be retiring from our industry. We miss them long after they leave, but are thrilled to build new relationships and earned friendships over time and with good honest business dealings.
Most everyone we mingled with seemed to enjoy Taste of Colorado 2016. Judging by the orders you graced us with, you found pricing to be good for your businesses as well! Thank you, thank you for those orders – TOC 2016 was a banner event!
Our vendor support set a new benchmark and our customers obviously reaped the rewards of the well-attended Education Forum, New Product Showcase and the best deals of the year. The fun we always have together during the social events are amongst the ways we can appreciate how important you all are (customers and supplier partners) to the health and continued success of our business.See you on Oct. 13, 2017, back at the Omni ChampionsGate for a Night at the Movies!
