Can you only see this info if you were attending this conference, as I can not find it. I only see the Prezi presentation, but this does not have the points that you mention.

Slightly :off_topic:, I'd like to go to the 2016 conference, but I don't want to spend company $$ if the benefit does not match the cost.  I'd appreciate insight from those who have attended in the past.

The SQF Conference is well worth the cost, IMO.  It's awesome interacting face to face with others with similar backgrounds and learning of problems various companies have faced and how they resolved them.  I have gone the last 4 years and it has yet to disappoint me.  Not to mention it's a ton of fun!!

I actually attended the SQF conference this year for the first time.  I have attended Food Safety Summits in the past.  I found the SQF conference to be well worth the investment.

I don't know if my bosses will let me go if they find out I plan to skip the "SQF Lip Sync Cage Match" or whatever it is.

The conference is a great benefit, in my opinion.  I have made many contacts and learned a good deal of information.  I have attended the past 5 years.  This past conference, I was an ambassador and was assigned 6 new conference attendees, most of whom are in our same food sector (food ingredients, flavoring manufacturer).  One of them even happened to be a customer of ours.  It's always great fun.  This past year, there were over 200 more attendees than the year before.  It just keeps getting better.  Every time I come back and write my report and share it with the owners of the company, they see the benefit in my attending.

 

Plus this year it's at Universal Studios.....my hubby is coming with me to this one :)
