I am SUCH a fan of the Gluten Free World Expo, I look forward to it almost as much as Christmas! A day to visit with and meet new vendors and products, taste and buy things that I can actually eat?! Yes Please! I rely on the Expo to remind myself that I’m not the only Gluten Free one out there, and to stock up on my favorite things. I’m so thankful for it and can’t wait for the next one!!

Such an impressive Expo! We had an amazing time meeting and seeing such an incredible array of vendors. The speakers were professional and informative and the samples were delicious! We can’t wait for next year!

I LOVED the Gluten Free World Expo. I am new to the gluten free world and feel like a deer in the headlights. I walked through each vendor’s booth – taste the food, asked questions, looking through cookbooks and purchased new products that I now love. I have ordered online and visited shops for the vendors I loved. To me, the Expo was super helpful and valuable to my learning how to be 100% Gluten Free.

This year, we found out my husband has Celiac Disease. The Gluten Free World Expo opened our eyes to some amazing companies that cater to his needs without compromising taste or nutrition. We walked away from the Expo with so many new companies to shop from and we are so grateful to have it all in one place!

I have been gluten free for less than a year and felt really overwhelmed. The Expo really opened my eyes to how many GF products are really out there Now I know I can avoid gluten to manage symptoms and still eat bread, treats, and other items I found out about through the Expo.

We absolutely love the Gluten Free World Expo each year!! As a parent of kids that need to eat gluten free, it is so helpful to have them taste different products without having to spend the money testing random products from the store. We always stock up on our favorites at the Expo and are thrilled when we find more great companies and products. Thank you, Thank you!!

Having two children with Celiac Disease is costly. The Expo is an excellent opportunity to see and sample GF products that we may be questioning, finding new ones, and learning about the great Gluten Free resources.

My husband and I are both gluten free. We had such a good time at the Expo; we could eat everything there and ended up buying a whole bunch of stuff to take home and make/eat! It was so nice having everything right there all together and not having to search for only Gluten Free things.
~Holly W., attendee
I love going to the Expo. It’s a great way to try new gluten free products prior to purchasing. It’s also great to buy products at a discount, which is rare for gluten free.

I have only been diagnosed with Celiac Disease for 4 months. It’s frustrating and depressing in the beginning when you have to give up so many things and constantly worry about what you are eating. Going to the Expo gave me hope, it showed me that there really are some delicious gluten free foods out there if you know where to look! It also was really cool being somewhere that you got to try lots of yummy food and not have to worry about it being Gluten Free. It was a little bit of stress-free eating.

As a newly diagnosed Celiac, this Expo pretty much saved my life. I had no idea what was good, what I could and couldn’t eat, and everything was new and overwhelming. Being able to try products before I spent a ton of money was amazing! i have found some of my favorite gluten free products at the Expo.
~Kassie S., attendee
As a GF Mom of three kids, it was so nice to not only sample myself, but have my kids sample as well. I knew immediately what foods they would or wouldn’t enjoy at home, plus I could stock up while I was there and got information to re-order when I ran out. Excellent experience with a variety of vendors.
~Lexie G., attendee
My experience at the Gluten Free World Expo was eye-opening. I was introduced to so many new gluten free products and got to listen to great presentations. I 100% recommended this Expo and can’t wait to go back next year!
The Gluten Free World Expo is something I look forward to every year. Being able to try new things without a fear of getting gluten-bombed makes me feel normal for a day. I love feeling like I belong, and it helps me know which companies will support me and my gluten-free lifestyle.

The Gluten Free World Expo has been the best that I have been involved with! As a vendor, the attendance numbers were delivered as promised, advertising was substantial and communication was quick and efficient. Also worth mentioning, I was at one of the biggest expos in Utah last weekend and my sales at the Gluten Free Expo were higher! I will participate in this Expo every year!
~Laura T., Vendor
We have participated in My Gluten Free World Expos since they began, and have really enjoyed watching attendance grow. It’s a great opportunity for us, as a local Utah company, to meet our loyal fans and customers directly and hear their stories while indulging the sweet tooth. We also really appreciate the year round presence that’s provided for the gluten free community, and to participate in events outside the show itself. It’s a true community experience to be able to communicate throughout the year with celiac and gluten free diners and those who support them.

The My Gluten Free World Expo, held at the South Towne center on October 13th, was the most successful expo we have been a part of. The number of attendees was almost double what was expected. In addition, their ability to take care of each vendor, and make sure all our needs were met, was outstanding! It was our best expo ever!
~Joyce Shrock, Founder, Grandpa’s Kitchen
The Gluten Free World Expo has been an exciting and advantageous event to be a part of the last two years! I’m amazed at all that they’re doing to expand the gluten free options for the large gluten free community here in Utah! They’ve truly helped create unity and a family feel among the people in our gluten free world here. I’ve met many people through this event who turn to the Expo each year to find new favorite products and options. I feel incredibly lucky for the ways my business has expanded and the opportunities I’ve found with their help!

The expo was great! I loved the variety of speakers and the frequency of them. Individuals had a chance to listen in every half hour to a new person and learn more tips and tricks. I felt that the Gluten Free Expo showcased an amazing variety of local and national companies committed to providing gluten free products to those who need.
