The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) invites food and beverage industry professionals and interested academics to submit an abstract -- 100 words or less -- of a current presentation that is of interest to the dairy industry. These abstracts will be used to identify topics and speakers for the educational program at Worldwide Food Expo.

Presentation topics might include sustainability, business fundamentals, food safety, consumer trends, product development and food, dairy or beverage technology. In addition, dairy suppliers are welcome to submit abstracts on presentations that are educational and objective.

The Worldwide Food Expo offers five educational tracks, three Super Sessions and more than 20 breakout sessions.

"Our goal is to provide Worldwide Food Expo attendees access to the best thinking, latest research and most engaging presentations available across the food and beverage industry," said Robin Cornelison, trade show manager for IDFA. "By issuing a call for presentations, we will be able to identify the research and issues that are most important to attendees."

The Expo attracts approximately 900 exhibitors, who display the newest technologies in equipment, packaging, ingredients and services for processors of dairy, meat, frozen food, beverages, snack foods, poultry and seafood. Food and beverage professionals attend the show to find solutions spanning the entire manufacturing process, from receiving and blending to processing and packaging to material handling and distribution. Attendees have the opportunity to view more than 1.2 million square feet of exhibits offering everything that food and beverage companies need to run more efficiently, create new products and improve profitability.

Entries can be submitted to, wwfe@idfa.org. The deadline is April 30. IDFA will select topics and notify chosen presenters in May.
