Opening Night Reception

“yeah once I was a boogie singer….playing in a rock and roll band…..I never had no problems ….burnin’ down the one night stands….”

The first day is done and you have worked hard, shaken many new hands, hugged some long- time friends, applauded the dynamic captains of industry, now it’s time to relax and mix and mingle.  World Tea Expo is where the industry comes toboogie nightsgether and the Networking Reception is where the real fun begins.  Join us on Thursday, May 29th at 5:30 p.m. on the Promenade as the first day of the show floor comes to a close and we get down and get funky!

Who better to do that with than Boogie Knights! This legendary band is famously wild, known for their ability to keep stadiums of people dancing all night.  They might shake up the entire California Coast, not just our opening night reception.  The Long Beach Convention Center’s Promenade will become the beachfront stage for your very favorite music and a chance to wear those shiny disco shoes that matched your nice white disco suit.  Of course, the suit will still fit you so be sure to “bring it” to the opening night reception!  If you would rather wear your leather bell bottom pants and vest with tie dyes, please feel free, as I know you will be welcome after the first drinks are served anyway.

The Opening Night Reception is included in all delegates registration but be sure to wear your badge to get in. Attire is casual, come as you are, or 70’s disco if you dare.  Light hors d’ ouerves will be served.  Cash bar.

“ I need you by me, beside me, to guide me….To hold me, to scold me ‘cause when I’m bad, I’m so so bad…”
