The Catersource Conference & Tradeshow is the only annual event of its kind. A show of unrivaled influence and inspiration, it’s a spirited gathering of all the people, ideas, and trending innovations shaping the catering and events industry.

Our goal is to create the most meaningful and impactful gathering of the event and catering industries in July 2021. It is really important that we all get together in a safe environment to share best practices, discuss world changing challenges and opportunities, and grow stronger together for a more profitable future. As we always do, we will want to lean on each other and learn new tactics for success.

We will have 100 sessions bring you topics ranging from diversity and inclusion, to post-pandemic business practices, trends and of course some appetizing cooking demonstrations. Check out the full 2021 agenda now.

But, who will be there? 

This year’s Catersource + The Special Event conference program feature all of the strategies and original ideas transforming the event industry. Dozens of industry trailblazers will be presenting, including our two featured keynote presenters: 

Pablos Holman, Opening Keynote

Pablos Holman created the first 3D food printer. He built spaceships with Jeff Bezos. And his TED talks, focused on problem solving and affecting the future of business through technology, have over 30+ million views.
Holman is a technology futurist, inventor with 70 patents and leader of a Seattle-based innovation lab where 150 top scientists and engineers are creating solutions to world-level problems. His keynote will set the tone for Catersource + The Special Event. He has a unique view into breaking and building new technologies and as we know, this year, nearly every company was broken in some way and needed "repairing".
