Ambitious start-ups are emerging on the food-tech scene with bold new concepts and fresh approaches to transform the industry. At Future Food-Tech on June 17-18, we showcase the solutions that truly have the potential to achieve this.

At the Renaissance Chicago Downtown Hotel, delegates will meet the innovators face-to-face, sample novel foods, and be inspired by panel discussions and keynotes with innovation pioneers, scale-ups, investors and the most dynamic names in food-tech.

Start-Up Exhibition

The Start-Up Exhibition gives early-stage companies the opportunity to have a dedicated, branded presence for the duration of the event, highly visible and ideal for meetings. Companies have the chance to generate new connections among the investment and global food-tech community, and to be positioned as key innovators in the sector.

If you’re a start-up ready to increase your visibility and power up your network, or an accelerator with an exciting portfolio of food-tech companies, we want to know more! Share your details today and we will be in touch for a chat.

Make Your Presence Known

Start-ups pitch and exhibit:
Your branded mini-booth includes a podium table, banner, power and WiFi, so you can focus on showing your technology and meeting new partners. Taking a mini-booth also gives you a spot on the start-up showcase, running each day.

Pre-Event Promotion: We announce your participation on our social media network, share your latest news, feature you on email, write and distribute a press release and build some noise before the summit!
