The reception was an opportunity for exhibitors to socialize and unwind after a busy first day. Many longtime exhibitors caught up with old friends who they only see at WDE.
To celebrate the milestone year, a cow head was carved out of cheese during the event, a highlight for many. Plenty of selfies were also taken. A 50th year logo previously carved was also on display.
Attendees were able to enjoy cheese, special Hoard’s Dairyman cow cupcakes, appetizers, and social beverages throughout the evening.
