WHAT WE'VE GOT
TeaTradeShow.com is a unique online trade show to connect businesses/buyers with tea trade suppliers and related products, industry organizations, and countries of origin, worldwide.
WHAT IT'S NOT
It is NOT a trade show that opens and closes in short time periods.
It is NOT a location where you need to spend large amounts of money to travel to for yourself and your staff.
It is NOT a live/in person experience, however we will connect you in unique ways.
It is NOT a location where you must ship your exhibit at great expense.
It is NOT a location where you need to pay for drayage/material handling.
It is NOT a short list of education over and done in a few days’ time.
Lastly, TTS is NOT intended to be a complete substitution to human interaction. Live events continue to be the fuel for personal growth, empowerment, and excitement. The point of TTS is that we will expose you to exhibitors and new products and industry movers and shakers every day, all day, 365 days a year. Why wait for a trade show in person if you need information NOW? Connecting businesses and consumers since 2003, you can trust that The Tea House Times' connections are now your connections and we will continue to visit shows to meet you in person and we will continue to partner with live shows and offer discount codes when we have them.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT YOUR SHOW THAT COULD HELP SOMEONE IN THE TEA INDUSTRY TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL (whether they are an importer, wholesaler, restaurant, hotel, retailer, serving or selling tea)?
..as an exhibitor –
..as an attendee –
WHAT DO YOU SEE NEW OR TRENDING IN THE BEVERAGE INDUSTRY OVERALL?
The Tea House Times has been publishing a year end tea industry trend report for most of our 15 years in publishing and educating the industry. The health message continues to be of utmost importance while all types of products including foods/beverages/beauty products are created to include tea as an ingredient. On the go options are constantly evolving. New brew / steeping techniques or small electronics are being introduced regularly. And, all types of food service establishments are beginning to understand tea as a new profit center.
WHAT DO YOU SEE NEW OR TRENDING IN THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE INDUSTRY THAT DIRECTLY OR INDIRECTLY APPLIES TO THE TEA INDUSTRY?
Foods cooked with tea as an ingredient, beverages and cocktails with tea as an ingredient, and establishments deciding to serve and sell better quality tea or tea that better matches the values and distinctions of any one place of business.
WHAT ARE THE LATEST TRENDS YOU HAVE SEEN AT YOUR SHOW OVER THE PAST YEAR?
Since many of our exhibitors are also advertisers in The Tea House Times, we are constantly receiving news releases and have seen all types of growth and adjustment over the years. New products or redesigned products, new small electronics, new strainers and steeping/brew methods are always evolving.
WHAT ARE ANCHOR HIGHLIGHTS OF YOUR SHOW EVERY YEAR?
Our anchors are learning who the best suppliers are, what their new product introductions are all year though, and learning through the show classroom which features over 15 years of accumulated education from The Tea House Times, Tea Course, and via contributions from our advertisers and exhibitors who may be “speakers” or presenters or information providers for our online trade show and classroom.
WHAT IS NEW THIS YEAR? . . AND IS IT SOMETHING OFFERED THIS YEAR ONLY OR EXPECTED TO CONTINUE?
What’s new?? TEATRADESHOW.COM IS NEW!! Under development, accepting exhibitors, and soon after, attendees/buyers will be invited to log on and enter the show and classrooms.
WHAT DO YOU CONSIDER THE BEST OPPORTUNITY FOR NETWORKING AT YOUR SHOW? (i.e. the show floor, after-hours events, awards, etc.)
Since TTS is fully online, it is up to each individual exhibitor or attendee to optimize their interactions. Watch videos that introduce the company, their products, and sales reps. Contact people for more info, set meetings of your own, etc. Possible meet-ups may be planned in the future, including buyer tours to origin.
HOW IS YOUR EDUCATION ORGANIZED? by tract? topic? industry niche? workshops? seminars? demos? on floor presentations?
Education is all online and organized by topics of interest all for helping a tea business to learn about tea and to find helpful hints for staying in a successful business which includes buying, serving, or selling tea.
HOW IS YOUR EDUCATION PRICED? a package price? per session? all free? In general… and provide link to further details.
Education is a monthly fee for qualified buyers only. The education is not open to the public. While “walking” the show or visiting the show floor and viewing of exhibitor details is free for pre-qualified buyers, the classroom requires a small fee.
