Dairy-Deli-Bake 2010, a private trade show put together by the International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association, wraps up today at the George R. Brown Convention Center. It was one of the biggest shows of the year at the GRB.
The downtown convention center is decked out to resemble your neighborhood grocery store, except it is much, much bigger and the aisles are carpeted. More than 8,000 IDDBA members are attending the massive expo, learning the latest retail trends in cakes, cheeses and other deli items. The star-studded guest speaker list included former President George W. Bush, Mike Ditka, Rachael Ray and Ben Stein.
At the end of the show, a mayoral proclamation was presented to IDDBA executive director Carol Christison and IDDBA president John Sullivan, third from right.
