Event Schedule

Day 1 is our demo day! Automation and tech experts will be joining us both virtually and in-person to showcase their impressive products. This will include live demos from local solution providers that will highlight products relevant to common challenges faced in the targeted food industry.

Day 2 you will have the opportunity to hear from other companies who have experience with the automation and ask questions regarding the process. As you walk through a familiar setting, you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions  about the process of integration and determine whether this solution would work for your business. Back at IGNITE, we will hear from our partners about funding programs and you will have a chance to talk with our integration experts.

Both days will run from 10 am-4 pm and will require registration for both in-person and virtual access. Unable to join us in person? No worries! Registration as a virtual attendee today and we will be in contact to set you up on Distantly to enjoy the conference from your own office!
