In this episode of The Produce Industry Podcast w/ Patrick Kelly he goes SOLO talking about the Canadian Produce Marketing Association Trade Show. Now this was Patrick's first time attending, but unfortenetly he was only able to get a TRADE SHOW ONLY PASS!!! What does that mean? Well NO EDUCATION, NO NETWORKING and NO DINNERS!!! But, that didn't stop Patrick as he ventured out in Toronto to explore.
Let's hear about how to plan your trip strategically when you have a TRADE SHOW ONLY PASS!!! You don't just sit in the bar or the hotel LOBBY!!! You must get out and do more for the city and the industry.
– Loblaws Inc Sobeys Farm Boy Inc. Costco Wholesale Canada and Longo's store checks.
-Ontario Produce Terminal
– Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) show first time attendee.
– Tampa Bay Lightning beat the Maple Leafs while I was in town (just saying, not a hockey guy)
