I’m all for “$22 million in delegate spending” but what exactly are fancy foods? I guess if I have to ask…

From a press release:

DC Secures 2012 Fancy Foods Show
National Association for the Specialty Food Trade Books Back-to-Back Meetings in DC

(Washington, DC)…Organizers of one of the specialty food industry’s most important annual meetings have signed on for a second consecutive year in Washington, DC. In a significant win for the DC hospitality industry, the National Association for the Specialty Food Trade announced that it will stage its 2012 Summer Fancy Foods Show at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The 2011 Summer Fancy Foods Show will also take place in DC, as announced in 2008, leaving New York City for the first time since 1992 for its back-to-back events in DC. Each show is expected to attract more than 20,000 attendees, generating more than $22 million in delegate spending.
