KeHE Distributors Selling Show Makes In-Person Return to Chicago

KeHE Distributors is excited to announce the highly anticipated return of its holiday show, one of the grocery and food and beverage industry’s leading and most popular marketplace events. The digital portion of the event will be held June 9th to 21st on KeHE CONNECT, and the in-person* event will take place in Chicago, IL at McCormick Place from June 15th and 16th.

The KeHE Holiday Show offers an opportunity to learn about and experience the most sought-after products and cutting-edge brands. Attendees can sample, explore, and buy natural and organic, specialty, and fresh products to stock their shelves ahead of the holiday season.

For over 30 years, the KeHE Holiday Show has drawn thousands of suppliers and retailers to the city of Chicago for exceptional innovation, exclusive networking opportunities, and one-of-a-kind deals. Over 700 notable brands will be showcased this year. 

“The show is a can’t-miss experience that the natural, specialty, and fresh product(s) community looks forward to every year. There is no other show in the grocery marketplace that can offer the amount of variety and substantial return on investment that the show successfully provides,” said Ari Goldsmith, Vice President of Marketing and Digital Media of KeHE Distributors. “For retailers and suppliers, it’s one of the best opportunities to connect directly, face-to-face, saving time and establishing meaningful relationships to not only satisfy business needs, but ultimately satisfy the needs and tastes of consumers across the country who will soon be purchasing these innovative goods.” 

The 2022 KeHE Holiday Show will feature On Trend awards, the Next Generation Innovation Showcase, crazy GOOD Deal Hubs, and a Serving Goodness Event powered by Hanson Faso. Among the excitement of the show, KeHE will welcome Andrew Zimmern, Emmy Award-winning celebrity chef for special cooking demonstrations and tastings on the show floor, Wednesday, June 15th from 10:00 A.M. to 2:30 P.M. CT. The in-person event concludes with an attendee-only after-show party at the Field Museum.
