Your New Experience Awaits...

4 Big Topics. 4 Big Voices. 4 Forums for the Future. Fresh Summit 2018 will be a different experience from the format to the show floor and everything in between. Get ready to be WOW’d!

Forums for the Future, talking about topics important to our industry. They’re not workshops, they’re inspiring large sessions that bring everyone together for engaging content.  

4 Big Voices, from inside and outside our industry, tackle 4 Big Topics. Imagine the best analogies for our complex industry. High profile professions, people who know how to inspire others, make good decisions under pressure, be pioneers, entrepreneurs. 4 Big Voices will inspire you with their stories and the moderators will help you see how they relate to our industry.

Peyton Manning will share his experience inspiring and leading through adversity and links to our industry will be made. Who better to share keys to achieving greatness than a quarterback who has lived it.  

PMA CEO Cathy Burns will bring inspiration to our future in the State of the Industry. Backed by the collective intelligence of the industry, the SOI will continue the legacy of business-changing predictions.

Greg Williams, Editor in Chief, Wired Magazine, will moderate a discussion with disruptive innovators.  New trends and opportunities will be addressed in entertaining, engaging, and accessible insights, challenging attendees to rethink their business to capitalize on the change, and come out stronger as a result. 

JUST ANNOUNCED!  Leslie Odom, Jr., Tony Award-Winning Actor & Musician, will share the stage with MorningNewsBeat’s Kevin Coupe in an unusual, provocative and highly original session. Together, they will explore business lessons, the importance of storytelling and the enduring power of a creative spirit, whether it be on the stage or in a store’s produce and floral departments.
Experience Extensions. In-between the inspiring Forums we’ve allotted time for you to extend the experience—connect with peers, join industry leaders in informal conversations about hot topics, or just take a break. Gain insights. Share perspectives. 

Celebrate the Industry. Join your colleagues on Thursday, October 18 from 5:00p.m. – 6:30p.m. for the Welcoming Reception. On the cusp of the 7th decade of Fresh Summit, we invite you to meet and mingle with the talented members of our industry at the Global Street Festival. Be transported around the globe with food and drink specialties and festivities from diverse parts of the world. Enjoy the rest of your evening, the way you like. 

Center for Growing Talent is hosting the Women's Fresh Perspectives Leadership Breakfast on Saturday, October 20 at 8:00 a.m. This year's inspirational guest speaker, Lindsey Vonn, Olympic Gold Medalist and World Cup Champion, will share career insights during the seated breakfast.



Join us in Orlando at Fresh Summit where you'll find everyone inside this dynamic industry. Together, we’re growing global connections, business and a healthier world.
