3) The Tickets
There are many ways to get your hands at the tickets, priced $40 each, to this coveted event. Besides a limited supply of discounted tickets available at the Lime Lite Restaurant (located at 1054 W. Shaw Avenue) from January 9, 2012 onward, tickets are also available on the Facebook’s Fresno Food Expo Page, at a special discount of $5 for those who “Like” the page. The organizers inform that from January 4-11, a special FB discount link would be posted on the page, which would be valid for online purchases only. Besides, tickets can also be purchased from the official website of the Food Show.
Amy Huerta, Local Business Initiatives Manager, City of Fresno, says about the Expo, “We wanted to create an opportunity for the public to immediately purchase the products they discover and enjoy at the Fresno Food Expo. Therefore, this year, public will be able to purchase items apart from sampling them with each exhibitor.”
