The second annual conference where foodies of all stripes discuss the many aspects of food, including food access, social justice, and the environmental effects of growing and processing our food is almost here. Whether you’re an entrepreneur interested in making contacts in the food world, an activist who wants to make food justice a reality, or simply a foodie who loves good food, the one-day FoodWorx Conference is for you.
On February 4th, 2014, the second annual FoodWorx conference will take place at the Historic Gerding Theater at the Armory in downtown Portland, Oregon. This one-day conference provokes thought and inspires ideas among everyone who loves, or is involved with, food and drink. What current trends will shape food and drink production, manufacturing, travel, distribution and consumption? Whether you’re just a casual foodie or you work in the industry, you’ll find a lot to chew on at FoodWorx.
Plenty of great speakers, including chefs, food writers, scientists, entrepreneurs, restaurateurs, and public relations professions, will give fascinating 20-minute TED-style talks. Included in registration is a gourmet lunch featuring Cascadia foods and an afternoon tasting reception.
