IACP is right around the corner. The International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) is a worldwide forum for the development and exchange of information, knowledge, and inspiration within the professional food and beverage community. This year, the conference will be held in Portland between April 20th- April 24th.
This is the place to be if you want to connect with culinary professionals, food writers, food people and so many food bloggers. They have some interesting speakers and sessions so sign up before it is too late.
If you will be at IACP, I would love to meet you.
I will have a table on the topic of building community online and offline with two sessions on Thursday. Join me.
Learn to leverage both online and in person events as part of an overall goal to develop a sense of place and community in an effort to develop brand loyalty and a genuine meeting place for like-minded individuals.
