Perfumer and Flavorist is excited to announce that Flavorcon 2017: Where Delicious Innovation Begins set new attendance records, bringing in more than 550 flavor, food and beverage professionals, including the top consumer packaged goods companies.

Held at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Rosemont, Illinois, Flavorcon 2017 hosted a bustling exhibit hall with more than 40 leading flavor, ingredient, equipment and service suppliers presenting the latest in flavor innovation.

The event offered numerous networking opportunities and a multi-track conference that included educational sessions on cutting edge topics such as flavoring for cannabis edibles, flavors with modifying properties, beverage trends, blockchain technology and more. Sessions were led by professionals from companies such as McDonalds, Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, IBM, Robertet Groupe, Excellentia, Berjé, ADM and Kerry.

Flavorcon’s program was created under the direction of an advisory board of professionals from some of the industry’s leading organizations:

Ariane Girard-Jouette, fruits and flavors engineer, Danone;
Mauricio Graber, president, flavor division, Givaudan;
Tracy Jaico, food scientist, Mondelez;
Segolene LeClercq, product developer, General Mills;
Tony Moore, chief flavorist, Flavor Producers;
Robert Weinstein, president, ingredients, Robertet;
Marie Wright, VP and chief flavorist, ADM/Wild;
Deniz Ataman, managing editor, Perfumer & Flavorist magazine; conference director, Flavorcon 2017.

In response to increasing demand, Perfumer & Flavorist will host Flavorcon annually, rather than every two years. Flavorcon 2018 will take place November 13-15, 2018, at the Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

“We are excited to share a growing and compelling conference for the flavor industry,” said Deniz Ataman, Perfumer & Flavorist managing editor and Flavorcon conference director.

“Flavorcon 2017 was a first in many ways. We’ve expanded our conference to include more food and beverage manufacturers to bring the flavor value chain closer together. And we introduced a dynamic experiential exhibit hall for everyone to meet, talk and taste face-to-face. We look forward to bringing you a successful conference each year.”
