(SECAUCUS, NJ – August 2, 2018) Kosherfest, the world’s largest international kosher food business show will celebrate three decades of progress with a number of key events. The show will take place at the Meadowlands Convention Center, November 13-14, 2018 with record 400 booths and an estimated 6,000 visitors from 21 countries. To celebrate the milestone, Kosherfest will host a series of in-depth conference sessions on trending developments within kosher which will include several keynote addresses, and panels with prominent kosher experts as well as chefs. The show will also honor nearly a dozen exhibitors who have been with the show since its inception.
Menachem Lubinsky, president and CEO of Lubicom Marketing Consulting, the founder of Kosherfest who co-produces the show with Diversified Business Communications, said that the 30th anniversary celebrations are really “a recognition of the extraordinary growth and development of an industry that has penetrated food markets worldwide.” He recalled that when he started the show in 1989, only 69 exhibitors and 600 visitors participated. “Contrast that with today’s large national and international participation and you can see why kosher continues to be one of the few food categories that is growing annually by double-digits.”
