Southeast Produce Council Gears Up for Southern Innovations 2022; David Sherrod Details
MILLEN, GA - Mark your calendars! We are only just a few weeks away from the Southeast Produce Council’s (SEPC) awaited trade show, as the upcoming Southern Innovations Conference is readying to kick off in Nashville, Tennessee, from September 22–24.
“Insight from our Board of Directors told us that there are four areas where innovation occurs in produce; at the farm, in the store, on the menu, and for the planet,” said President and Chief Executive Officer David Sherrod. “We incorporated these sections into our What’s New? From the Consumer Point of View research and Silent Theater on the trade show floor.”
The immersive show experience will include the What’s New? From the Consumer Point of View Education Session by Anne-Marie Roerink of 210 Analytics, which takes place on September 23 at 9:45 a.m. This session is set to highlight the latest innovations and consumers’ viewpoint on key topics.
“This research brings us important insights like the fact that 46 percent of Americans love the idea of various shelf-life technologies,” Sherrod added. “Attendees can hear about technologies shoppers are interested in, then listen to speakers on these technologies in our What’s New? Silent Theater!”
The show will feature an array of impactful presentations from innovation leaders, held at the Silent Theater. According to a press release, the innovative theater set-up mimics a silent disco where attendees will use headphones to maximize speaker audio and allow for uninterrupted exhibitor discussions. In addition, each speaking company also has a kiosk surrounding the theater for attendees to stop and learn more.
