Ice Cream Technology Conference

The Ice Cream Technology Conference, presented annually by the International Dairy Foods Association,  is the premier event for ice cream and frozen dessert professionals and is the only meeting that focuses specifically on innovations in frozen dessert research, technology and new market trends. It provides unique opportunities to learn from experts on food safety, labeling and regulations that affect the industry. Ice Cream Tech is the place to learn and share, and to engage in an open exchange among participants and experts on technical and practical processing issues in the ice cream and frozen dessert industry. The conference features networking opportunities, hands-on sessions, product tasting, and the annual Innovative Ice Cream Flavor Competition.

All professionals in ice cream and frozen dessert technology — including plant managers, regulatory compliance personnel, research and development professionals, and quality assurance staff — will gain new insights, ideas and solutions by attending the conference. Suppliers to the ice cream industry are also encouraged to attend.

For those interested in sponsorships, the Ice Cream Technology Conference offers several options to be seen and heard. Sponsorship is one of the best ways to brand your organization as a thought-leader and to highlight your commitment to advancing ice cream and frozen desserts. IDFA offers various levels of sponsorship opportunities. Please contact Melissa Lembke for more information: (202) 220-3512,
