World Trade Center Miami’s 20th Annual Conference and Trade Show offers businesses a learning and networking experience for importing, exporting and trading products on a global scale.
World Trade Center Miami is presenting the 20th Annual Food and Beverage Show with major sponsors; United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) in a large food pavilion featuring American agricultural products and companies. The USA Pavilion will be open on Monday and Tuesday – September 27 and 28, 2016 at the Miami Beach Convention Center 9:00 a.m. each day and close by 5 p.m. There are over 80 booths registered at the USA Pavilion exhibiting and sampling products as well as making connections and deals. Food and beverage companies in the USA Pavilion range from large brand names like Butterball and Sysco to small business companies like Agri Food and Feed.
According to the USDA, agriculture and agriculture-related industries contributed $835 billion to the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) in 2014, a 4.8-percent share. The output of America’s farms contributed $177.2 billion of this sum—about 1 percent of GDP. President of World Trade Center Miami Charlotte Gallogly says, “a long time partnership with the USDA and NASDA sponsorship has provided invaluable industry knowledge and practices to new companies seeking to import and export their food and beverage related products to the Americas.”
Last year’s show reported over $172 billion in projected and gross sales over the course of two days. The Americas Food & Beverage Show and its networking events are designed to bring together all segments of the food and beverage industry to expand sales opportunities for businesses looking to expand and grow throughout the Americas via Miami’s growing trade and logistics industry.
