"We're offering four general sessions to highlight global demographic, economic and food trends," says IDFA Vice President of Communications and Meetings Susan Ruland. "And we're excited about the in-depth plant operations workshops the first three days of the show, which are specifically designed to help plant managers cut costs and improve efficiencies."
Worldwide Food Expo will also feature more than 20 "break-out" concurrent sessions on topics ranging from organic labeling to sanitary design principles. In addition, IDFA and AMI are each offering pre-show workshops.
In general sessions -- called Super Sessions -- on Wednesday through Friday morning, leading experts on the global economy, generational shifts, and consumer eating trends will provide timely insights. In addition, an AMI general session on Friday morning will include provocative discussion about global markets.
The three Super Sessions:
Competing and Succeeding in a Global Economy
Generations, Lifestyles, and the Future of the Food Industry
Consumer Trends: What America Eats and Drinks
Special AMI General Session: 'The Seven Revolutions"
Practical, Plant Operations Short Courses:
Flexible Production Lines
Six Sigma for the Food Industry
Technology for Tracking Milk Processing
Sanitary Design Principles for Equipment and Facilities
