A packed room of commercial exhibitors enjoyed food, beverage, and conversation at a party hosted by Hoard's Dairyman. The highlight of the evening was when the trade show booth winners were announced.
Representatives from each booth were asked to hit a piñata. First Beth Saxton from APC took several swings at the piñata without breaking it open. Then with one swing, Doug Williams from Kuhn broke open the piñata. The piñata and the food served at the banquet were selected to celebrate the recognition of Abelardo Martinez, the publisher and editor of Hoard's Dairyman en Español, as the World Dairy Expo International Person of the Year.
