To boldly go... where no food conference has gone before? Space food is on the menu at Food Vision USA (we've lined up NASA on day three), but we're just as concerned about what we're eating here on earth, and whether food retailers are stuck in a time-warp as American consumers are changing...

The key question our speakers will pose to delegates is: How can food and beverage companies up their game and give today's ultra-demanding (and tech-savvy) consumers what they want, when - and where - they want it?

This will be the overarching theme of Food Vision USA​, a must-attend conference on the food industry calendar that will address questions including:

  • American eating habits are changing. But are food retailers still stuck in the 20th​ century?
  • How do you build a completely new food category (on a shoestring)?
  • How do Millennials buy food online? And will subscription snacking really take off?
  • How do you maintain a challenger brand mentality as a mainstream player? 
  • Is 3D printing a gimmick or something with real commercial potential for the food industry?
  • Are DNA diets ready for prime time?
  • Can edible insects live up to all the hype?
  • What will we eat on a Mission to Mars?

Held at the Drake Hotel in Chicago on October 27-29, Food Vision USA​ is a unique networking opportunity for CEOs, brand managers, R&D professionals, marketers and labeling and regulatory experts. 

Organized by the publishers of FoodNavigator-USA and NutraIngredients-USA, Food Vision USA​ ​will bring together senior figures in business strategy, R&D and marketing from Chobani CMO Peter McGuinness and Sparkling ICE boss Kevin Klock​ to rising stars such as Austin Allan (founder of ‘soup in a bottle’ brand Tio Gazpacho) and Daniel Imrie-Situnayake (co-founder of edible insect start-up Tiny Farms).

Building on the success of the Food Vision global event, held annually in Cannes, France since 2013, Food Vision USA​ will shine a spotlight on the companies – large and small – that are doing most to drive innovation and champion change.
