Call For Speakers

Prepared Foods is excited to "Invert the Pyramid" for the 2018 annual event to take place September 30 - October 3, at the Marquette Hotel in Minneapolis, MN.

Prepared Foods’ New Products Conference operates at the intersection of trends and the future, the food and beverage industry and is inclusive of the broader innovation ecosystem. This interconnectedness results in a highly specialized marketplace of key stakeholders.

This diversity rich experience is highly conducive to collaboration and knowledge exchange as well as in person new product introductions and is unlike any other event of its kind.

We are actively seeking food & beverage (manufacturers) innovators and disruptors who are passionate about sharing their perspectives and stories of failure and success to help advance the industry forward.

We’re inviting YOU – our innovation community to come together to activate information and innovation in an all new exciting experience.

Who and what specifically are we looking for?

  1. TOP EMERGING TRENDS in the food and beverage industry
  2. CONTEXTUALIZATION – how to adapt trends and other visionary information to your own brand and business.
    Real world Business Cases work well to achieve this.
  3. ACTION LEARNING:  Putting ideas into practice in real time. Workshops and field trips are some potential ideas – but we are open to all collaboration ideas.

We're looking for food & beverage manufacturers and 3rd party consultants. If you can help bring future forward content to life, we want to hear from you.

To compensate for your time, selected presenters receive FREE admission to the entire 3 day conference.
