The Eastern Produce Council and PRODUCE BUSINESS magazine have once again joined forces to present an exciting world-class event for the industry. The four-day event includes networking opportunities, a one-day trade show of over 400 companies, retail “thought-leader” breakfast panel hosted by Perishable Pundit Jim Prevor, educational micro-sessions and tours of the region’s vibrant industry, including local retailers, wholesalers, foodservice distributors, urban farms and unique eateries.
The program also includes an outreach to students and faculty at regional universities as well as distinguished culinary schools, plus the “Connect with Fresh” media immersion, luncheon and show tour involving influential bloggers, consumer editors and those working with all forms of social media.
Back by popular demand are three co-located conferences for those who wish to come early and/or stay later:
Monday, December 5, the Foundational Excellence program with Cornell professors offering one day of industry trends and take-aways for executives with less than 5 years in produce;
Tuesday, December 6, the Global Trade Symposium offers attendees the latest insights on produce importing and exporting to and from the Northeast Region;
Thursday, December 8, the “Ideation Fresh” Foodservice Forum, covers the role of produce in culinary innovation and foodservice profitability.
Tuesday’s Opening Cocktail Reception and Wednesday’s events were free to representatives of buying organizations, including retailers, wholesalers, and procurement executives at restaurants and other foodservice operators.
Supply-side business types in the industry can purchase admission to the trade show and enjoy our Opening Night Cocktail Reception and Keynote Breakfast.
“Celebrating Fresh” is the theme of our conference, and there’s no better way to start celebrating than to be in New York City , The Event Capital of the World.
