Guidelines for sampling
What is ‘Chiller Corner’?
The ‘Chiller Corner’ is your chance to have your product sampled at the conference. It is an area in the pre function networking room specially set up with fridges and sampling cups to enable brands to showcase innovative products.
How does sampling work?
You are not required to supervise product sampling. Products will be displayed in the unmanned fridges and recyclable sampling cups will be made available.
What to supply?
Each brand company who successfully secures a spot within ‘Chiller Corner’ will be allocated two rows (approx. ½ shelf) to display product. Please provide up to 30 product samples and the Zenith team will ensure your products are kept restocked throughout the day.
Ready-to-drink, pre packaged soft drinks only.
We will contact you on receipt of your delegate registration booking to find out if you would like to take advantage of this incredible opportunity. Full details will be given, if you qualify for shelf space.
