"We bring together a very high quality audience who attend the Summit for the education and the solutions in the exhibit hall. In fact, 71% of our attendees approve, specify or recommend company purchases, making it a very worthwhile event for our vendors," said Scott Wolters, director, tradeshows & conferences, BNP Media, producers of the event. "The best part about the Summit is that we offer dedicated floor hours which do not overlap with our education program. In fact, we bring our attendees onto the show floor to find solutions, participate in our Community Hub, and learning theaters."

The exhibit hall opens on Tuesday, May 7 from 5:00 - 7:00pm with a Welcome Reception where attendees can network with their peers, set meetings, and get a sneak peek at the variety of products on display, while enjoying delicious food and drinks. The exhibit hall is then open on Wednesday, May 8 and Thursday, May 9 from 10:30 am - 2:30 pm.

One of the highlights of the exhibit hall is the Community Cafés, which were introduced on the show floor in 2018, and have expanded into a Hub and placed at the center of the exhibit hall floor for the 2019 event. The Community Hub will offer subject matter experts in the four areas of the food safety supply chain including processing/manufacturing, distribution, retail/foodservice and regulatory. During show hours, professionals from these food industry sectors will continue the conversations begun in the education sessions for 30 minute time slots in the Community Hub.

For the fifth year, the Summit is partnering with Sani Professional to present The Sani Awards which celebrate innovation and excellence in food safety within the foodservice industry. These awards recognize and promote best practices spotlighting food safety in the areas of education/training, employee/customer programs and guest experience. In addition, The NSF International Food Safety Leadership Awards will also be presented during The Food Safety Summit. These awards recognize individuals and organizations that have made a real and lasting impact on food safety. Nominations are evaluated based on innovation, design and the contributions made to the advancement of food safety.

On the show floor, attendees can gain additional insight from subject matters experts during free 30-minute educational presentations at the Solution Stage. Leading industry companies including bioMerieux, Lubriplate, ScanTech Sciences, TraQtion, NSF, Eurofins, ClorDiSys Systems, SafetyChain Software, Compliance Cops, Siemens, ReposiTrak, and Mettler Toledo will present. Solution Stage presentations will be offered Wednesday May 8 and Thursday May 9.

The sprawling exhibit hall at the Food Safety Summit has proven to be an essential resource for attendees, bringing them the opportunity to meet with leading companies introducing the latest products and technologies in food safety, engage in small group discussions on the supply chain segments, attend free presentations by food safety experts, and network with peers.
