Hungry for Fresh Ideas?

PMA’s Foodservice Conference & Expo is a networking feast. 

We listened to your requests for a fresh new conference and expo. It’s a new theme, a new schedule, in the newly renovated convention center. What remains the same is our dedication to fresh produce in foodservice.

New theme, new schedule and new format: 

  • Consolidated 2-day program, each with a keynote educational session and networking opportunities
  • Concurrent experiential Fruit & Vegetable Training and Buyer Roundtables 
  • More space on the expo floor, in lounges and throughout, to connect with peers and see and experience the latest innovations in foodservice

The conference kicks off Saturday with a keynote session on innovation featuring keynote speaker, Danny Meyer, CEO of Union Square Hospitality Group and founder of Shake Shack.

PMA’s Foodservice Conference & Expo helps businesses thrive by bringing together more than 1,800 sellers and buyers—including distributors, retailers, wholesalers, brokers and end-use operators.

Meet and mingle with highly-accomplished chefs, get the inside look at how fresh produce makes the plate and see how collaboration and new innovations are changing the industry.

It’s a must-attend event with valuable insights for everyone in the produce supply chain.
