Food & Wine Expo Gold Coast

The Gold Coast Food & Wine expo is on again this year, hosted by CTM Events and taking place at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, January 22nd-24th 2016.

This year's expo is set to be bigger and better than previous years, with over 150 exhibitors filled with gourmet food and wine there is something here to satisfy everyone's palate.

There is a wide variety of exhibitors at this year's expo everything from wine, gourmet food and desserts to celebrity chefs and everything in between.

With this much wine and food in one place who could go wrong! You can sample some of the food and wine at many of the different exhibitor's stalls and find out what it is that makes them special, so best to head there on an empty stomach.

Some of the exhibitors at this expo include over 30 wine/vineyard stalls, cakes, macaroons and various sweets stalls, as well as stalls selling and sampling cheeses, sauces, dips and international cuisine. There will be free taste testing and sampling all weekend from various stalls.
