Charlotte Gluten/Allergen Free Expo Goes On The Road

Have you heard the news through the grapevine yet that the Charlotte Gluten/Allergen Free Expo 2012 planning is underway? And did you hear that we will be graced with the presence of national royalty?!?

Well, it's all true!
Because of the support you all have given the yearly Charlotte event, we are having to expand the space again by double. You have my sincere gratitude for making our work effective. 
But, this means we will now be moving into The Park Expo Center on Independence and Briarcliff Rd.. or as Charlotteans always think of it, the Merchandise Mart building, where they have the Southern Women's Show.

This move will give us 40,000 sq. ft. of space to expand into because after each event, we all say, "We need a bigger space next year." 
Nonetheless, we again have you to thank for giving us a new bar to rise to each year.

The 2012 Expo will feature more value than ever with appearances by:
  • Mrs. United States 2011 ~ Shannon Ford, Miss Fla USA 2002, Fantasy Chix, former NFL Miami Dolphin Cheerleader, Advocate for Celiac Awareness, Fitness and the Paleo Lifestyle. Shannon is also a Triathelete. Shannon was diagnosed with Celiac Disease 2 years ago and has made 1 in 133 ~ Celiac Disease Awareness her platform for appearances.
  • Dr. Alessio Fasano ~ Director of the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland
  • Dr. Peter Osborne ~ Founder of Gluten Free Society, Author, and expert on healing multiple health issues with grain free 
  • Chef Peter Reinhart ~ Chef on Assignment, Johnson & Wales Culinary Education Department, and cookbook author, as well as world renowned expert in baking. Chef Reinhart will be releasing a gluten free baking cookbook in August of 2012.
  • Up to 200 vendors of fine quality gluten/allergen free products
  • Mini Organic Gluten Free & Grass Fed Farmer's Market where attendees can buy locally grown, pesticide free products and complete their shopping trip for the week
& So much more, because you deserve it!

But that's not all.

Our goals for these events are to educate, bring new products to the public, focus on the Main Street Vendors that have become the manufacturers of tomorrow's gluten/allergen free market, and to raise awareness wherever we are that these health issues have viable solutions in the form of nutrition & supplementation.

.If you think your town is in need of an event, or if you are a vendor who would like to be in our Expos, please contact Nikki Everett at irresistiblyglutenfree@gmail.com

We hope to see you there and having a wonderful experience because we know we will enjoy meeting you all in your home towns while traveling across this great nation.
