NEED ADVICE. small girl BIG DREAMS 4(MUST READ!!)

Postby N.S » Fri, 25 Jun 2010 2:44 pm

Hi All!

Afterall the drama-mama like event, tears of sorrows and joy, highs and lows, court case, emotional (and vehicle!!) breakdown, i am finally back where i left off. A beginning of a new adventure!

Well, its nothing great, to be honest, but its a start! After a year of getting involved in the food catering business, odd delivery jobs- part time bank jobs- which i'm still doing it, i've decided to venture in other form of a food business- yes, yes the pushcart.

After much consideration,i bought this super cool machine and threw a Food-Tasting Party last weekend. Feedback form was given out and i must say that the response was really encouraging, although there is still room for improvement.

Since last year,8th HALAL FOOD EXPO & M'SIA FRESH FRUITS FIESTA Singapore Expo event was a successful one, i've decide to participate this years from July 15-18 and see what is the demand for this food product is like-based on a large scale of food consumer.

-READ: In 2009,they reached visitors level of almost 85,000 in 4 days!!-

Since,I'll be doing crepes,as you all know- is very much common elsewhere in the world like, France, Japan, Thailand,China etc.. Maybe you would like to give some pointers? Like what are the flavours you love the most? and some other flavours which can be put in the menu?

I really would love to hear your opinion!!

You can find me near my pushcart for the event, GRAB & GO CREPES. I'll be wearing a white and red uniform with a little chef hat. Just holler at me and say ' HEY NADYA!' - just so i know you're from the forum!

Good Day!!

Regards

We did the Halal in March, so if you want any tips let me know, hope you haven't paid for your booth yet! Unless you are sharing.

Because price is negotiable if you can back up with facts. 85000 people is not true at all. Event organisers are in sales and will do anything to sell their booth space. You will be lucky to get 5000 a day at Halal, agreed lots will be going becuase of the electronic sales, but one of the electronic halls is also doing food too and its before hall 4.

Hall 5 & 6 come before hall 4 and hall 4 is split into A & B, which means you are crammed into half the hall, lots of booths, because the event organiser utilises his space t with few people, makes it look very busy indeed your position in the hall is also important. to his own benefit, not your benefit. The more booths, the less space for consumers its very tight and a few hundred people makes it look very busy. :wink:

If thought i had PM you with details! Are you sharing to cut costs?

your booth size is 3 X 2 or 3X4. If you want to minimise your risk, you should talk, with those that have experience in the halal exhibition especially in the food sector.

I do appreciate your views ksl, like i mention its my first event, so you can call me young and inexperience. ;) My booth is only 2X1, as i opt for the smallest space available.

Do sent me an email, if you want to discuss further.
