IDDBA's Show & Sell Center is a 10,000 sq. ft. model store in the heart of the Dairy-Deli-Bake Seminar & Expo. The Center is a hub of activity featuring innovative merchandising, live demonstrations, and new this year, the Show & Sell Theater. All this makes the Show & Sell Center a destination on the show floor.
Retail attendees visit Show & Sell for:
- Innovative displays and concepts
- Actionable ideas
- Best-of-class merchandising
Exhibitors sponsor Show & Sell to:
- Increase brand exposure
- Position their products in innovative displays
- Present their products in best-of-class merchandising
The Show & Sell Center also includes the IDDBA Cake Decorating Challenge. Three supermarket decorators are selected to compete in a three-day challenge featuring production cakes, wedding cakes, and three specialty cakes (special occasion, IDDBA show theme, and decorator's choice.)
This year's Center will feature:
- Interactive presentations in all new Show & Sell Workshops—another compelling reason to bring more staff to Atlanta.
- Industrial Chic to Farm to Table to Italian Rustic—we’ll highlight these top merchandising design trends.
- Taste the concepts—learn from retail and manufacturing innovators.
- Take-home—researched ideas and concepts that will help grow your sales.
- Breakfast Bar—try the cold-brewed nitro coffee, juice bar, and chocolate--yes, chocolate--to ramp up your breakfast program.
- Culinary Concierge—our foodservice solutions run the gamut of concepts to reach Millennial consumers. Stop in to taste what the team is cooking up.
- Simply Cheese—expand the appeal of your cheese program with custom cuts and appetizers. Meet a sommelier and taste his inspired cheese and wine pairings.
- Destination Deli—make your delis a destination with new sandwich and pizza concepts. Stick around Tuesday and make a sandwich with Shaq!

2014 Sponsored Packaging
Packaging can play a large role in merchandising and displaying attractive food items. The merchandising presentations show subtle packaging, which let the food be the star, and also packaging that enhances the look. Either way, packaging plays an important role in keeping the food safe, contained, and portable.
