Summer FoodOvation Exchange 2018

FoodOvation is a spectacular platform for your relationship and business development! It’s culinary experience forward and is very intimate with plenty of face time for operator and manufacturer attendees. The 1 x 1 exchanges will be held in four locations throughout the Sun Valley Resort. Sponsors are strategically grouped at each location based on products and execution needs. Operators will been divided into groups of three, and will rotate thru all sites over the course of the two days, spending a 1/2 day at each location. Bikes will be used to navigate throughout the exchange locations.

Our Summer Non-Commercial Exchange will specifically target independent leaders in the following segments:

  • Colleges & Universities
  • In-Store Deli/Bakery
  • Long Term Healthcare
  • Healthcare/Hospitals
  • Convenience Stores
  • Hotel/Hospitality
  • Military



Each day will bring an exciting activity for the group, with each sponsor location hosting one. This is a great opportunity to get to know each other personally, and yourselves a little more too as you try something new! Our activities include: Gun Club, Biking, Fly Fishing and Hiking.  (All necessary equipment will be provided.)
