IDDBA Launches Expert Neighborhood at This Year's Event

Monday, March 27th, 2017

With IDDBA 2017 just around the corner, the industry is gearing up for another event full of new opportunities and connections to be made. In this vein, the International Dairy-Deli-Bakery Association (IDDBA) is bringing a new aspect to the event, called Expert Neighborhood.

Hankering for some solid advice? Got some challenging questions you need answered? Look no further than this innovative method to keep industry members at the top of their game. IDDBA has marked out a certain sect of this year’s show floor to allow interested attendees with 20 possible industry experts for 25 minutes to discuss business and industry issues. 

This unique opportunity will allow attendees to peruse the professional acumen of the available experts over categories of People, Products, and Regulations. The nine topics are as follows: 

  • Engaging consumers
  • Engaging employees
  • Engaging millennials
  • Food waste
  • Innovation
  • Product Profitability
  • Food Safety Modernization Act
  • Menu Calorie Labeling
  • Product Labels

These new benefits for attendees are boundless in the changes it could bring to a business. For instance, according to a press release, event-goers can book an appointment to talk with a subject matter expert like Harold Lloyd on practical employee retention techniques that are used by top retailers to help stem the loss of employees to competitors. Or Bruce Kimbrell, who can share Disney cast knowledge and best practices that can help create emotional connections with customers that lead to greater sales and more memorable, immersive experiences. Interested in learning more about the new FDA menu calorie labeling requirements? Meet with an expert on this topic and more, all on the floor of IDDBA 2017.

According to IDDBA’s website, appointments for the opportunities can be booked starting Saturday, June 3, 2017. This year’s event will be held in Anaheim, California, from June 4-6, 2017.
