After a year of change because of scheduling conflicts, the Tortilla Industry Association went back to a formula that proved successful in the past and will hold its 22nd annual convention and trade exposition Sept. 12-13 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, NV. With the move, the TIA Tech Seminar will be held May 23-24 in Anaheim, CA.

According to the association, the move was made possible because the Harrah’s hotel chain advised TIA there were scheduling conflicts with its planned convention dates at the Paris Hotel. Harrah’s offered TIA some incentives to consider a change, but the association opted to return to its traditional September time frame after adjusting it for the 2010 International Baking Industry Exposition.

In addition to satisfying those members who preferred the fall timeframe, TIA negotiated $89 nightly room rates at Caesars Palace, a larger exhibit hall, and additional discounts and upgrades.

The spring’s TIA Tech Seminar features reports on GMPs, third-party audits, sustainability and LEED certification, tortilla trends, new product formulation and important information on commodities. Additionally, there are factory tours of JC Ford, Lawrence Equipment and Casa Herrera, which supply equipment to the tortilla industry.
