The Chicago-area plays host to what is the largest gluten-free expo in the country on April 20 and 21st, 2013. As you know, new products, cookbooks and information are coming out all the time about all things gluten-free and this is the place to see it. They expect over 7,000 people in attendance over the two-day event and tons of vendors.
I am excited to say I will finally get to go to the Gluten-Free/Allergen Free Expo as an official blogger. If you can get yourself to Chicago, by all means do it. But if you can’t, please keep an eye on my website for all the scoop or see below on how you can follow it through social media.
Here’s what you can expect from this expo:
- Vendors — 150+ are expected. From Glutino to Red Apple Lipstick to Pamelas Products and even Crave Gluten Free Bakeshop (see my 2011 post-Cupcake Wars interview with Kyra, the owner, here) View the full list of vendors.
- Presenters — I am very excited about all the great things that we can learn at this event. Speakers will be talking about autism, healthy diets, cooking for TEENAGERS, gluten intolerance and much more. View the list of presenters and the schedule.
- Reasonable fee for a great value! You get all of this for $20 per day ($35 per day if you want to come as an early bird). Children 5-12 years old get in for less. Tickets can easily be purchased online or at the door.
