Press Opportunities: Virtual Press Office and More

Top media and influencers attend the Summer Fancy Food Show every year, and we have numerous tools to help you get you in front of them.


  • Schedule a 5-minute appointment with a PR team member on Saturday, June 22nd to showcase your company. The more we know about your product/company the better we can communicate with the press. First come, first served.

  • Submit your product information form. Give the PR and Trends teams a leg up on scouting the show. Note: Submission does not guarantee press coverage or inclusion in trends roundups. Please do this ASAP so that the teams can properly review your information.

  • Write your press releases ahead of the show. Be newsworthy, concise, and informative. Use this template to announce that you’ll be at the show.

  • SFA Members can upload nine press releases for free to Cision’s Virtual Press Office (VPO) throughout the year. For each show, you can upload three. 

  • Utilize the Press List. Updated often, it can be found here. This list consists of the press who have opted in to receive exhibitor emails, and the names of outlets (only) that have opted out.

    • Best practices

      • Paste your press release into the email and use only low-res images.

      • Always BCC if sending a mass email.

      • Follow up once with personal emails to gauge interest.

  • Create your Press Kit. The smaller and more concise, the better - postcards are great! Be sure to include your booth number, contact information during and after the Show (email and phone), website, and social media.

At the Show:

Visit your SFA PR Team (Jennifer Lea Cohan, Katie Conway, and Tanya Henry) at the Press Office and take advantage of the following opportunities:

  • Drop off your Press Kits

    • 50-75 copies spread out over 3 days (you may leave extras under the table).

    • Space is first come, first served. You’re allowed a 9”x12” space on a table or in a cubby (about 11”x11”.) FYI: Some exhibitors decorate their cubbies to be eye-catching. 

    • Exhibitors and PR professionals may stop by the Press Office to replenish materials, however they can’t hang out - it’s a work area for media.

    • Drop-off times: Saturday, June 22: 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.; June 23 - 24: 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

    • All press materials must be retrieved by 4:00 pm on Tuesday, June 25. Anything remainders after then will be thrown out or recycled.

  • Bulletin Board: Post information about press events, interview opportunities, book signings, cooking demonstrations.

  • Connect with the PR Team! Missed having a 5-minute meeting? No worries - please say hello to us. Time permitting, we can sit down and talk about what you are featuring.

Product Samples: No product samples are permitted in the press office with your press materials. However, you may bring the PR Team (only) samples during the 5 minute meetings, to acquaint the team with what you are showcasing. 

For any questions, please contact Jennifer Lea Cohan at [email protected].
