Countdown to Kosherfest 2021 Begins with Great Expectations

Portland ME…Despite still being more than a year away, many kosher companies are making plans for the upcoming 2021 edition of Kosherfest, November 10-11, 2021 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center. Some kosher companies are already discussing space requirements while others are planning to roll out new lines of products during the coming year. One long-time exhibitor said, “I can’t even imagine how electric a show will look like after two years.” While show management, like all other trade shows, opted to cancel its 2020 show, it is planning to sponsor several virtual events in 2020 with plans to be announced sometime this month. Most companies agree that Covid-19 has put a damper on their plans for expansion and large-scale trade programs to introduce new products, but are hoping that their plans will be in place for the 2021 show. In the meantime, the industry, like much of the world, watches nervously on the trajectory of the ongoing pandemic.
