Steering Committee Members
"This was my second time attending the IMPACT Summit. I found it very informative, made some good contacts, and brought back some information that was of benefit to my group. As a result I brought a colleague with me this time. The presentations and scheduling were tailored to my interests. When I preferred to attend presentations not on my original schedule it was modified per my request. I would recommend attendance at these events."
"I've attended IMPACT both as a speaker and attendee. From a speaker’s perspective, it gave me an opportunity to share best practices with many of my peers for an industry wide issue. As an attendee, I would recommend and encourage other senior level executives to speak – it provides an outlet to give back to your industry and professional community."
IMPACT is the food and beverage industry’s fastest growing event, quickly establishing a reputation as the deal generating show. Explore last year's solution partners!
"The perfect balance between networking opportunities and scheduled meetings make IMPACT a successful way to discover new business partnerships. Additionally, the event organizers do an incredible effort at making this event as turn-key as possible for an exhibitor. The educational program features great speakers with relevant topics which allow for easy conversation."
The food and beverage industry's leading executive-level conference plays host to over 500 senior-level attendees each year. In the last decade, we’ve produced 10 large scale IMPACT conferences across America.
