Call For Speakers

Prepared Foods is excited to unveil a new theme for the 2017 annual event to take place September 10-13, at Grand Hyatt Denver in Colorado.

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.

The design is deliberately intimate so as to “bring innovators face to face with the future of food.”

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 innovators who are passionate about sharing their perspectives and stories of failure and success to help advance the industry forward.

This year’s event marks a revolutionary transformation. We’re inviting YOU – our innovation community to come together to activate information and innovation in an all new exciting experience.

Participate in three immersive days of discovery around the trends, knowledge and insights that matter most at the intersection of culinary, science and technology.

We’re scouring the earth for disruptive thinkers and DOERS – our goal is to unite innovators together in one place to collaborate across disciplines.

We are searching for real world practical wisdom.
Our mission is to revolutionize this event from a conference to an industry catalyst and to achieve that we need the right mix of the right people to come together and share, learn, challenge, inspire and provoke for this experience to make an impact.

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.

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.
