OEN Food & Beverage Showcase 2018

October 2, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 6:00 pm

Ask anyone visiting Oregon and you’ll find that most visit for the food—the variety of amazing restaurants, the impeccable craft brews, the thriving community of food carts, and the numerous food and beer festivals. The food and beverage industry is one of the hallmarks of our culture and a major draw for tourists and businesses from around the world.

As the signature event of OEN’s Food & Beverage Cluster, OEN’s F&B Showcase is about convening F&B professionals (or just people who love good food and drinks!) from all across Oregon and SW Washington—entrepreneurs, distributors, accountants, lawyers, investors, marketers, and more—in one place, while showcasing an amazing collection of statewide F&B entrepreneurs and startups.

In addition to hearing presentations from various F&B companies, you’ll also

  • Learn from the journeys of experienced, successful F&B founders during our “Candid Conversations” panel discussion
  • Taste up to 50 F&B products from across the region at our reception/food fair.
  • Listen to a thought-provoking conversation about social justice and food
  • Connect and network with F&B professionals from across the region
  • If you are an entrepreneur:

    Whether you’re looking to present on the big stage or just expand your professional network, this is a great opportunity to make important connections that can help you take your business to the next level.

    If you are an investor:

    Come and find the next great Oregon food company—you might just discover the next Brazi BitesDave’s Killer Bread, or Salt & Straw.

    If you are a service provider:

    Connect with your target audience and learn about some of the most innovative and fastest growing companies in the state.

    Innovation in food and beverage breathes life into Oregon’s culture and its economy. OEN, Green Zebra GroceryThe Radical Brand Lab, and Built Oregon, came together to create the F&B Showcase. Why? Because we believe a thriving network of entrepreneurs makes Oregon stronger.
