Chef Invitation for WestEdge Design Fair- October 18-21

The WestEdge Design Fair would like to invite Santa Monica chefs to participate in the culinary demonstrations at the 6th annual WestEdge Design Fair which will take place October 18-21 at Santa Monica’s Barker Hangar. WestEdge presents a not-to-be-missed event for industry professionals and design aficionados alike with 200+ exhibiting brands representing the best in home design. Design seminars and exhibitions, culinary demonstrations, book signings and special events, including an Opening Night Party on October 18, round out the experience -- all in an environment designed to engage, entertain and inspire guests. Please see the attached overview deck for your reference.

The Show’s Culinary Pavilion will be sponsored by Citibank and be a hub for cooking demonstrations with Los Angeles’ top chefs.  In addition to the event’s marketing and promotion, Citibank will also be inviting their preferred Citi credit card holders to attend with exclusive invitations.

Each demo will last approximately 30-35 minutes, followed by samples for the audience (75-100 attendees).  Each chef is responsible for bringing their own ingredients and cooking supplies; we will provide serving utensils, plates, napkins, and can also offer assistance in passing out samples. 

Participating chefs/restaurants will benefit from the following promotion:

  •  Listing in the Show’s half page LA Times ad
  • Listing on the Show’s website and email blast promoting the culinary schedule (sent to 50,000+)
  • Opportunity to distribute postcards to the Show audience
  • Opportunity to participate in a book signing at the Show (if you have a cookbook)
  • Inclusion of your restaurant on the customized travel page which includes our favorites spots and attractions to visit while in Los Angeles
  • ¼ page ad in the official WestEdge program directory ($495 value)

In exchange, we ask that you promote your involvement by sharing a WestEdge banner and ticket offer/discount via your restaurant’s social media channels. We will also provide you with a supply of complimentary tickets to extend to your most loyal customers, family and friends.

 We are scheduling demonstrations throughout the days Friday-Sunday, October 19-21.  Please let us know if you’d like to be involved. If you have any questions or would like to discuss in further detail, please feel free to contact Megan Reilly at 917.822.0350.
