  1. Good Afternoon,

    I am interested in competing at the at the expo, but I have a some concerns. If the are any slots available for the savory foods competion at this time? Are competitors allowed to bring supplies in deli cups as opposed to original packaging? I would be traveling from Philadelphia with limited space in my hotel to store food items. Also if my plans are only to compete that day what ticket do I purchase? I look forward to your response.

    Thank You,
    J. Thomas
