Innovations will be held from Tuesday, June 13 to Thursday, June 15 at America’s Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
Innovations is an invite-only event. Only Dot Foods customers, national account operators, and supplier partners who signed up to attend or exhibit can be at our show.
As you explore our packages and sponsorships, add your selections to your shopping cart. On the checkout page, you will fill out additional details such as your contact information to register to exhibit. Everyone from your company who is attending Innovations will also need to sign up for attendee registration when it opens next year.
 
Before checking out your cart, be sure to explore our Product Marketing opportunities. You can add all our marketing packages and features to the same cart, allowing you to easily purchase from our Innovations and Product Marketing programs at once.
Our new Premium Plus package gives exhibitors the opportunity to participate in our Culinary Experience lunch to show their products in an inventive dish or beverage for attendees on the trade show floor. Package holders also get exclusive access to our National Account Operator Happy Hour. The package is $30,000 for exhibitors who bring their own food truck or booth and $45,000 for exhibitors who work with us on creating a custom, branded booth.
 
We’ve also introduced a shopping cart feature, which allows you to add packages, features, and sponsorships from our Innovations and Product Marketing programs as you explore our offering. On the checkout page, you will fill out additional details such as your contact information to register to exhibit.
