Past Events 


Symposium 2023

It was great to be back together in Orlando!

We started off with a splash at SeaWorld where attendees enjoyed an evening in the Arctic and endless fun on the new ICE BREAKER roller coaster!

Demographer, Ken Gronbach kicked off the full day of education with his informative and thought provoking look at the future of the foodservice industry.  Jason Wange from the Foodservice Powerplant Network, closed the event with his riveting take on developing wellness through positivity, authenticity and the power of story.  And in the middle of all of that were nine dynamic breakout sessions to choose from with topics ranging from sustainability to unattended retail to Virtual Reality in design – definitely something for everyone!

Session materials will be posted here as they are submitted by presenters.

Montreal Conference 2022

It was so great to be TOGETHER AGAIN!  The conference in Montreal was our first in person event in over two years due to travel and event restrictions caused by COVID19.  Attendees were treated to an authentic lumberjack meal at a working maple syrup farm, a fire and ice silent disco, and two full days of dynamic speakers and valuable education.

Location: Hotel Bonaventure, Montréal, Quebec

Date: April 21 – 23, 2022
