Naperville, Illinois-based KeHE Distributors will hold its annual holiday show June 14-15 in Chicago.
The show features more than 800 exhibitors, 900 retail buyers and thousands of industry leaders in attendance. The event offers an opportunity for attendees to learn about and have sensorial experiences with the latest innovative natural and organic, specialty and fresh products coming to market.
The show is geared toward grocery retailers looking to stock their shelves with new products for the holidays and established brands seeking to accelerate growth. The show floor provides attendees with an immersive experience to sample brands and buy products.
“After a historic return-to-show in 2022, we are beyond excited for this year’s holiday show,” said Ari Goldsmith, VP of marketing and digital media of KeHE.
“Not only are the show exhibitors and participants better than ever, but KeHE is also celebrating its 70th anniversary. We are looking forward to sharing our appreciation for achieving this milestone anniversary with our partners and retailers who have made the last 70 years possible. Looking towards the future and growth, we are pleased to welcome KeHE’s new CEO and President, Deb Conklin.”
