Summit Background About the Sponsors

The food & beverage industry faces unique challenges when it comes to innovation - a changing regulatory landscape, the consumers' quest for healthier foods that taste good, the search for new market channels, determining whether new product requests have longevity and what will families pay more for in an uncertain economy.

Recognizing the specific needs of the food & beverage industry around the topic of sustainable innovation, Innovationedge and The Management Roundtable have partnered to launch the first annual F&B 2011: The Sustainable Innovation Summit being held August 9-10, 2011 in Chicago, Illinois at the Allerton Hotel. This exclusive event will serve as an executive leadership forum to challenge current thinking and approaches, set the stage for new trends in sustainable innovation and create a senior level networking community for ongoing support and dialogue.

The Sustainable Innovation Summit is limited to 100 delegates, including faculty, and attendance is by invitation only. Innovation leaders from the top 100 food & beverage companies have been invited to participate.

Through keynotes, candid case studies, facilitated Q&A, networking sessions and a post-conference workshop, participants will learn how top innovators are currently managing industry challenges to innovation, what approaches are having more impact on the bottom line and what steps should be taken to ensure your innovation investments will yield higher returns.
