How do my samples get to the show?

All participating vendors must complete the sample request form. This form will inform us as to how your product will be arriving at the show. 

The form needs to be completed even if you are bringing your own samples to the show. The form is required, whether you ship or plan to personally bring your samples to the show. The sample form must be completed by September 5. Samples being shipped to GFI Atlanta must arrive at the Atlanta warehouse by Tuesday, September 18, in order to load on the designated GFI Food Show truck.
