New Location, But Same Great Taste!

7th Annual Food & Drink Fest...the Festival with Taste moves to The Careport Centre

 7th Annual Food & Drink Fest…the Festival with Taste has a New Location.

March 23, 24, & 25, 2012~The Careport Centre, Hamilton

2012’s Festival with Taste is excited to announce their move to The Careport Centre, located at 170 Longwood Road South in McMaster Innovation Park Hamilton, Ontario. While the team at Food & Drink Fest is sad to say goodbye to their home at Copps Colsieum, we felt it was time to take the plunge and move the event to the bigger and more functional Careport Centre. There will be many advantages that come with moving the event to The Careport Centre, which is the region’s largest up and coming trade show and convention facility. Some of those advantages include:

  • FREE Parking for both exhibitors and customers
  • Over 30,000 square feet of extra space. (allowing exhibitors to expand their presence at the show)
  • Everything will be on one floor and in one space
  • More loading docks and easier access for exhibitors to load-in and load-out
  • Ability to handle an increase in attendance while at the same time making larger and more comfortable aisles
  • Larger indoor crunch area for Food & Drink goers if lines get large. (Very important in inclement weather!)
  • Ability to move people faster into the show. (Helping to minimize wait times at rush hours and gives our Food & Drink guests the best experience possible)
  • Easy access off of Hwy 403 for exhibitors and consumers coming in locally and  from out of town,
  • Much more flexibility to evolve the event while still maintaining an intimate, interesting and fun atmosphere
  • Very accessible public transportation to the facility
  • In walking distance for visitors and university faculty and students that reside in the west end and downtown core of Hamilton.

The team has already begun the exhibitor rebooking process and several of Food & Drink culinary attractions have returned! Such fan favs as La PiazzaRidge Road WineryHot MamasBig Rock BreweryTwisted LemonMy ThaiCreemore SpringsWellington Brewery,Caroline CellarsDymentsVineland Estates, Cupcake Diner  and many more have already reserved their booth locations for Food & Drink Fest 2012.

All and all Food & Drink Fest 2012 is already promising to be another fun, delicious night on the town! Be sure to come and visit us at our new digs: The Careport Centre, March 23, 24, & 25, 2012
