Exhibitor Testimonials

Here's what happy exhibitors have to say...

Ergo Chef, LLC

Mike Staib, VP

The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining show is by far one of the best organized shows we participate in from floor layout to management help, and the wonderful people and volunteers who work the show.  We have had wonderful experiences at every show along with great sales.  Your show has helped us to introduce our quality products to the wonderful consumers in DC and Atlanta area. Thanks for putting together a top notch show.

Todd’s Dirt Seasonings

Todd Courtney, “The Dirt Man”
Our company Todd’s Dirt Seasonings does many different shows throughout the year. The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show is one of our highlights of the year. The huge foodie crowds that come are the type of customers that you want coming to your booth. I have had great success each year that I come to the show. The people who put on the show are fantastic to work with and try hard to make the show successful for their vendors. I would highly recommend the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show.


Holly Di Maura

Owner, Holly’s Oatmeal
Exhibiting at the Show is a great experience all the way around. The staff is so supportive, pays attention to detail and gives a personal touch to everything. You don’t get that at any other show. And they bring in attendees who are there to buy, which has been essential in helping us build our brand in the marketplace.

Something New

Madeline Wagner, Owner
What a fantastic show! We not only sold everything we hoped to sell on Saturday, but also sold everything we set aside for Sunday ON SATURDAY as well! It far exceeded our expectations and we can’t wait for the next show! I wish all of my events were as successful as this one! Thanks for putting together such a terrific event!

Huntley’s Seafood Dippin’ Sauce

Tiffany Huntley, Owner
We attended the Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show for the first time in 2009. We are a small family owned business and were overwhelmed by the response. We sold 25 cases of our Huntley’s Seafood Dippin’ Sauce and got so many leads that we now have a large customer base from outside the DC region. As a result of the show, we created a website so people can now order on-line and we have been picked-up by two restaurants that now use our sauce in many of their recipes. Wow!!! What a great experience!

BR Blends

Iris Benjamin, Owner

We are BR Blends – the mid-Atlantic distributors of Gourmet Blends, importers of 25 year old barrel-aged balsamic vinegars from Modena, Italy.  We’ve done a wide range of events that run the gamut of food, wine, craft, flower and home shows – large and small.  The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show is the best, most professionally run event we’ve ever done.  Their management staff made themselves available and responsive from beginning to end.  No question was too small to get a fast answer.  The management promised great attendance and delivered without exaggeration.  Load-in and load-out was smooth and their staff would circulate throughout the show to make sure everything was running smoothly. The clientele came to see their favorite chefs and were then ready to taste and purchase our product.  We immediately signed a contract for the 2010 show and are looking forward to another successful event.
