Exhibitor Registration

Are you interested in an excellent opportunity to network and showcase your company's products/services to influential decision-makers in the ice cream distributing and vending industries? Then you won't want to miss the opportunity to exhibit at the TICA's 54th Annual Convention in San Antonio, TX.

Testimonials:

"This convention brings together members from all facets of the ice cream and italian ice business from manufacturing to wholesalers, to product distributors, and related industry suppliers from around the country and beyond! The convention provides an excellent opportunity for both new and established frozen dessert-related companies to meet, interact, discover, learn, and possibly create new relationships to bring mutual success. " - Deborah Stanek Reast, Rosati Ice

"If you want to meet all the top companies in the ice cream industry, then you have to go to this convention." - Vince DeConna, DeConna Ice Cream

"This is not your grandfathers ice cream convention. This group of vendors and distributors have a unique collaborative approach to raising all boats with the tide. The board of directors and members went out of their way to make sure new vendors received warm introductions to their members and members were genuinely interested in exploring new solutions. Very unique group, well organized and effective." - Mike Hajjar, ERC Application
