Summer School in Session for Gourmet Catalog
May 13, 2014,
Fabio Viviani will attend Summer School
DALLAS-Gourmet Catalog & Buying Group will host its 5th Annual Retail Summer School Event during the Atlanta International Gift & Home Furnishings Market this summer.
The event, which will take place July 9-10 at AmericasMart, enables housewares vendors, 10 of whom have been added to the group this year, to educate Gourmet Catalog retail members about their products and offer demonstrations and have in-depth discussions. In addition, chef Fabio Viviani, a fan favorite from "Top Chef," will introduce Picnic Time's new Heritage Collection, and chef, author and grilling expert Elizabeth Karmel will present her new line of everyday essentials in collaboration with Revol.
"Summer School has become such an important event for our store and vendor members," said Janis Johnson, founder and president of Gourmet Catalog. "The intimate demonstrative setting allows vendors to present products effectively and stores walk away with valuable knowledge they won't find anywhere else. We can't wait to see everyone in July."
