Food & Drink Conferences

I research and craft the lists of upcoming NYC Food & Drink Events and Food & Drink Conferences, selecting the kinds of activities I think users of this site might find interesting or professionally relevant.  If you would like to list or advertise your event or would like me to post an Event Write-up on this website, please reach out to me via the contact form on the right.

No compensation is received by me for listing events and conferences on this site, unless otherwise indicated. When I have received comped tickets to events, I have indicated that on the event write-up posts, in compliance with updated Federal Trade Commission guidelines.
