Innovation Stage

Make an Impact and Take Center Stage:

Back by popular demand, the Innovation Stage will be comprised of 30-minute, seminar-based sessions designed to showcase recent industry breakthroughs, success stories, and best practices, all in one convenient location on the Central Hall show floor.

The Processing Innovation Stage will provide you the impact of the Innovation Stage but within a targeted show floor destination - the Processing Zone.  Located inside the North Hall.

Expand Your Reach:  Along with your live presentation, we will work with you on a pre-recorded presentation to make your message available on-demand to thousands of additional participants.  Your pre-recorded video will air online once the show floor opens on September 11, extending your footprint beyond the show floor!  The recording will then remain on demand for additional viewing and engagement.
