2016 Conference: Destination Minneapolis
Wednesday, October 26 - Friday, October 28
The Radisson Blue Downtown

The IFEC Board of Directors invites you to join your IFEC friends and colleagues in Minneapolis for our annual conference. Planning is still in progress with details to come.

Food business intelligence coming your way
The conference program will dig deep into the culinary community with presentations by top chefs and restaurateurs, behind-the-scenes tours with influential food and beverage crafters, and other visits to places to be found only in Minneapolis.  And when we're not adventuring out into the city and beyond, we'll be at our home base exploring new ideas, learning from thought-leaders, sampling a wide range of exciting F&B products and ingredients represented by members, and, of course, talking editorial content in Office Hours meetings.

Come early on Day One for a unique educational opportunity & stay til Friday AM
To take advantage of all the learning, sharing and relationship-building opportunities on tap, schedule your travel to be there by 11 AM Wednesday morning, October 26th. That's when we'll kick off the conference with a dive into a topic you'll want to learn more about -- details to come. The Welcome to the Conference reception starts at 3 PM Wednesday.

Food Tours will leave the hotel on Friday after brunch and return at 6 PM.
