Virtual Bakery Trade Show Changes Date
Baking industry online event eBakery Show International 2009 has moved its opening date from April 1 to Aug. 1 to allow more companies to participate in today's tough economic climate.
"When we planned our virtual show, we had no idea the world would be hit with the deep recession we now have," explained Matt D'Agostino certified master baker and owner of La Bonbonniere Bake Shoppes in New Jersey, one of the principals of the show. "While many companies want to participate in the show, their budgets are simply stretched too thin for the fiscal year ending June 30. Therefore, we have postponed eBakeryShow International 2009 for three months, and it will now be held Aug. 1 through Sept. 30 2009."
D'Agostino, along with his partners Rick Crawford CMB, consultant David Patterson and Carson Porter, who owns a company specializing in online shows, determined that these dates move the show closer to the RBA and Düsseldorf shows in October, which may bring added benefits to participants. "In addition to all the benefits of the virtual show, the eBakery show will serve as a launching ground for new products and ideas for those shows and motivate attendees to attend and participate in those live events," said Crawford.
