The Megatrends Media Party, to be held in central London on Wednesday 25th June 2008, will enable up to 11 food and drink producers to exclusively demonstrate their new products and provide journalists with the latest news in a relaxed environment. The headline sponsor, RDA Organic (http://www.rdaorganic.com), is “thrilled” to be involved in the event along with Mile High Drinks (http://www.milehighdrinks.com), wineSight (http://www.winesight.fr) and Porter Foods (http://www.porterfoods.co.uk) among other food&drink companies. Helen Lewis, managing director of food&drink towers, said: “We are really excited about this event and pleased to have such great companies on board already. This is the latest innovative strategy in a series of steps food&drink towers has undertaken since its launch in October 2006. Our aim has always been to increase communication within the food&drink business and make life that little bit easier for everyone involved. This event will achieve this goal. Journalists are being invited from across the consumer and trade media to have a few drinks and meet the faces behind the brands. The party will give journalists an opportunity to collect a selection of exclusive leads and stories in an informal environment over a glass or two of wine – on us!” Joanna Nash, events director at food&drink towers, said: “The response from both journalists and the industry has been outstanding and surpassed even our high expectations. We are looking forward to a fun evening full of conversation and networking without the pomp and ceremony associated with so many media events. This is the start of next generation events for the food and drink industry, which we are pleased to introduce in London.” -Ends- Notes to editors: Journalists are invited to attend the Megatrends Media Party in central London on Wednesday 25th June 2008.
