What is the IFSEA Conference?

For three days, professionals and students within the food service/hospitality profession meet to expand their network and knowledge of the industry. We invite you to be part of providing this opportunity to Hospitality and Culinary Students from across the nation to have a chance to interact, learn and get inspired. Attendees will learn from the best and brightest from a broad cross-section of the industry, earn continuing education units, network with industry leaders and peers and relax at social events. The 8th Annual Culinary Challenge will showcase the student’s skills, creativity and teamwork in a 90-minute mystery ingredient competition with a chance to win the coveted trophy bowl.

Why Get Involved?

Without generous supporters like you, IFSEA could not provide quality education and networking programs. Money raised directly benefits IFSEA members, industry professionals, and students in food service/hospitality through conference activities and educational opportunities.
