It is the premier event to create valuable connections to build business, promote products and learn.

The event will also be a key learning opportunity for those interested in exploring the most pressing issues for the industry.

Speakers will include industry leaders in sustainability, food safety and transportation. Experts from Euromonitor present on new markets, and the closing session will focus on retail trends shaping the industry in the region.

The keynote speaker, Karla Wheelock, is a social entrepreneur, lecturer and mountaineer who summited Everest and will speak to human behavior – both individual and collective – in both personal and business life.
