Food Fete Events

Food Fete Events (03/2020) Food Fete has stopped producing its signature food media events. If you're interested in what our founder Jeff Davis is up to these days, visit www.samplinglab.studio.

Since 2005, Food Fete has been connecting specialty food and beverage brands with the national food media through its invitation-only media events that showcase new products. Produced multiple times each year in San Francisco and New York City, Food Fete has become one of the food industry's "must attend" events, regularly attended by hundreds of editors from Food & Wine, O The Oprah Magazine, Foo

www.FoodFete.com When I announced last fall that Food Fête was coming to a close, little did I realize it would soon be reimagined and become reborn as something completely different. While the iconic, tabletop product showcase press events Food Fête is best known for are gone, what's replacing th...

UPDATE; Food Fete may not be going away after all. We're working on a pivot to significantly change the focus and format of the event.

Nothing is scheduled just yet, but as soon as we figure things out, you'll be hearing from us.

Looking forward to 2018!

Food Fête Says Adieu

We’re all familiar with the proverb that all good things must come to an end, and if you’ve had the good fortune of building a business from scratch, you can’t help but wonder about the day when you move on to something new.

For me, that day has arrived for Food Fête.

After 13 years of producing the industry's first sponsored media event for specialty food brands, I’ve decided to move on from Food Fête and bring the events to a close.

Since 2005, I’ve produced 40+ events that have connected hundreds of food brands and journalists, giving me the pleasure and honor of working with some of the smartest people in the business.

So, what’s next?

I’ll be focusing my energies and resources on my new WonderHouse project (www.wonderhouseevents.com), an experiential media event for lifestyle brands. Experiential marketing has captured my attention for several years now, and even served as the catalyst for launching my SamplingLab concept in 2014.

I see tremendous opportunities to deliver a more creative and robust media experience to lifestyle brands by making the most of experiential marketing strategies and user feedback. I also have some other projects on the drawing board, so stay tuned. Who knows? Food Fête might even re-emerge in a completely new format in 2019.

Food Fête has been an amazing experience that has made me extremely proud. I’m also very grateful for all the innovative food brands and creative public relations representatives who have taken the Food Fête ride with me over the years. They have inspired me, and I'll keep those relationships going with new projects that offer something new to their clients.

For now, the best way to stay updated on my current and future projects is to follow WonderHouse on our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter social media channels.

Thanks, and until next time...

Jeff Davis

Thanks for all the Memories

After 13 years of bringing together food brands and the food media, I’ve decided (for now) to put Food Fete on hiatus.

Other projects and opportunities are in front of me that are capturing my attention, so I’ll be focusing on those for the near term.

If circumstances come along that enable me to elevate Food Fete to a point where it becomes more valuable for food, beverage and kitchenware brands, I’ll look at bringing it back.

Thanks.
