Technology, Disruption, and the Future of Food & Beverage

Four Reasons You Need to Be At the 2017 Inogen Worldview Conference in NYC

February 16th, 2017

We all see the way technology and innovative disruption are changing industries all around us, but what do they mean for food & beverage? And what are the EHS implications of these changes? The 2017 Inogen Worldview conference will tackle these very issues on April 19 in NYC. This will be a great opportunity to analyze thought-provoking material through an EHS management lens, and to incubate and translate insights to future priorities. 

Here are our top 4 reasons why you should be there:

1. A unique, specific focus on the biggest issues facing the industry.

Food and Beverage industry analysts are no longer questioning if market disruption will occur, but rather how it will occur and what businesses must do in order to remain competitive. Our hope for the WorldView event is to give attendees a big picture look at macro-trends, and then gradually take them deeper to look more specifically at the impact of technology, the real-world implications of disruption and what can be done about them, and then how to prepare future leaders in the industry for the challenges they will face.

2. Expert speakers offering a variety of perspectives.

Four industry thought leaders will prime the conversation, presenting a multi-faceted look to the future of the Food and Beverage sector:

  • Stephen Rannekliev, Director of Food and Agribusiness at Rabobank, will offer a high level look at the macro-trends Rabobank sees impacting the industry in the future, as well as the disrupters they foresee having the most impact. 
  • Louisa Burwood-Taylor, Editor of Agfunder News, will examine the impact of technology on the industry, specifically looking at areas like CO2 emissions, climate change, water, food waste, and farmer welfare.
  • Amy Braun, Senior Sustainability Manager for Kellogg Company, will tackle practical, real-world approaches to the disruptions and challenges the industry faces.
  • Tensie Whelan, Director, Center for Sustainable Business, NYU Stern School of Business, will examine how we are preparing future leaders to deal with the issues at hand.

3. The chance to discuss EHS&S implications with peers.

One of the most unique aspects of this event is that part of the day is dedicated to discussing and processing the information and insights the speakers have provided. Instead of letting it all rattle around in the echo chamber of your mind, or writing pages of notes in a notebook you never look at again, there will be an interactive panel discussion and then a full afternoon of small breakout groups to discuss what it all means to EHS&S.

4. It's free!

There's no cost to attend the event, and a reduced rate is available for hotel accomodations.
