Aija Liepa, marketing specialist of the restaurant KEY to RIGA, speaks about an increased demand in dishes offered during festival days and interest of media representatives.
“Our festival menu got excellent reviews last year. We are happy that we took part in this project since we felt high activity in social networks that resulted in lots of new followers and potential clients,” Aija Samoilova, CEO of the restaurant Upe in Liepāja, tells.
Participants will present new menus, special offers, chef’s compliments and great discounts
