Obama to Keynote Global Food Innovation Summit
The 44th United States President Barack Obama will be the guest of honor at the 2017 Seeds&Chips Global Food Innovation Summit. Obama will be a keynote speaker on May 9, and will also discuss food and agriculture on a panel with Sam Kass, senior food policy advisor to President Obama and promoter of the White House's health-conscious revolution.
This four-day summit will bring together hundreds of business leaders, academics, investors, policymakers and agricultural experts to discuss innovation from farm to table, where food and technology meet, in Milano, Italy, from May 8 to May 11.
In-depth sessions will range from hi-tech topics, such as applications of 3D printing in food, to marketing, such as the impact of millennials on innovation. Food Tank President Danielle Nierenberg will also be speaking at the Seeds&Chips summit as a distinguished guest.
The Global Food Innovation Summit is presented in collaboration with TUTTOFOOD.
