Agenda

6:00 - 7:30 PM Registration, Networking, Cocktails, Gourmet Food

It’s the room where it happens, to borrow from our Broadway friends. Network with others in the industry to spur collaboration, gain insights, and forge relationships.

In addition, visit and cast your vote for your favorite exhibitor at the Innovative Emerging Company Showcase, where up-and-coming F&B companies display their products, offer food tastings, and demonstrate their differentiation as they make valuable connections.

7:30 PM - 8:30 PM Panel Discussion: Considerations When Thinking of Selling Your F&B Company

If you are thinking about selling your business, there is more to consider than valuation and purchase price.  Should you sell to a private equity firm or a strategic company?  What is the investment banker’s role in the transaction?  We will discuss advantages, disadvantages, negotiation techniques, and the potential for growth equity partnerships.   Join us to get clear insight into the benefits of a sale and the pitfalls to avoid.

After the panel, we will announce the results from the Showcase and award the 2022 Most Innovative F&B Company.

8:30 PM - 9:00 PM Networking
