James Beard Foundation Food Conference

Our world of 24-hour news cycles, instantaneous global communications, viral hashtags, and ambitious Wall Street growth targets has created a population ever hungry for something new. At the 2016 James Beard Foundation Food Conference, Now Trending: The Making of a Food Movement, we’ll engage with experts from across disciplines to explore the genesis and lifecycle of trends and apply that knowledge to food-system issues. We’ll explore lessons and best practices from the field of trend forecasting, before engaging with you on the food issues you care about most and providing the expertise and encouragement you need to turn your passion into the next big thing.
