Talkin’ About Many Generations

The foodservice packaging industry is convening in Santa Fe May 3-5 for our spring conference.  What will we be talking about?

Our conference highlights are:

  • John Maketa returns to present a demographic update. John last spoke to us in 2018 and we can’t wait to hear what he has to say now!  John combines insights related to the power of shifting demography with his professional experience leading high performing organizations. He also adds some relatable psychology around human behavior to create instant, lightbulb moments and inspire meaningful action.
  • Following that, our theme with demographics will continue with a presentation from Thom Pastor, representing the Association for Healthcare Foodservice. We are looking forward to hearing about trends in this segment of the industry.  What does the future hold?
  • Megan Lynberg of Datassential join us to continue our theme with sustainability trends among students and Gen Z. Megan has devoted her career to helping food and beverage companies make smarter, data-driven decisions without adding to their already full plates.  Her insight into this segment of the industry is one we are excited about!
  • We will also be updating members on legislative and regulatory issues that are affecting the industry. This critical session is not to be missed.

And of course, our spring conference features the always-popular golf tournament at Towa Golf Club.  Not a golfer?  No worries as the Santa Fe area is rich with many fascinating places to visit.

Our closing event at the Legal Tender Saloon will take us all back the old west.  More great networking and maybe even a little game of poker!

Can’t make this one?  Don’t worry as we’ll have another great one coming up this fall:  October 26-27 at the Kimpton Hotel Monaco in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  We are already working on the program and will have updates available soon.
