The Maui Food Technology Center announced it is seeking vendors for its 1st annual Supply and Service Expo.
The event is described as a “trade show for manufacturers,” and networking opportunity for entrepreneurs and businesses interested in expanding or re-branding.
The event is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at the Hannibal Tavares Community Center in Pukalani.
Event organizers say manufacturers and distributors of food, ingredients, equipment and packing supplies are encouraged to participate. Business services and educational groups that work with the food and hospitality industries are also encouraged to register for the event.
“Among those expected to attend will be food processors and manufacturers, restaurants, delis and bakeries, caterers, hospitality establishments, independent stores and specialty and gourmet product distributors,” event organizers said.
Vendors pay $100 to participate in the expo, which is free for qualified non-profit organizations. MFTC organizers say public admission is free for qualified attendees who are seriously pursuing development of their business.
