Why should you register to attend IFMA COEX 2018?

Quality connections aren’t hard to come by at COEX. The environment is jam-packed with foodservice professionals looking to meet with current customers, peers and make new connections. Past attendees rate COEX at the top of their list as the go-to event to develop quality connections.
COEX is unique in comparison to other industry events as the format is intimate and specific, allowing you to spend more time with the right people.
Speed Meetings:
One of the most impactful and unique components of COEX. These sessions provide valuable face-to-face dialogue between chain operators and suppliers, enabling operators to share their goals, strategies, needs and challenges with current and potential partners.
The dynamic, one-of-a-kind sessions will capture your full attention, as thought-leaders share valuable perspectives and experiences on hot-button issues. With a planning committee of 40+ operators, the content is truly “by operators, for operators”.

No other industry event provides as many opportunities to connect. At COEX, IFMA members and operators have numerous ways to engage, whether during organized one-on-one meetings, entertaining events or roundtable discussions. COEX is a one-of-a-kind networking opportunity for foodservice leaders.

Registration for COEX 2018 is now open! Qualified operators will receive complimentary registration and hotel accommodations. For more information, contact Laura Everly at laura@ifmaworld.com.
