Get Ready for a Culture-rich, Low Cost Experience with a Whole New Flavor

Immerse yourself in the Puerto Rican culture this March, and participate in optional tours and tastings led by the foremost leaders in food R&D and high-energy networking events. The RCA Annual Conference & Culinology® Expo will help you enhance your knowledge, expand your network and experience the local cuisine.

Best of all, travel and the conference hotel are very cost-effective and comparable to last year’s conference in Denver but with a flavor entirely of its own. Nonstop flights are abundant to San Juan from more than 20 U.S. cities, and U.S. citizens do not need to bring passports or exchange currency.

The conference will be located at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel, located just minutes from the airport and Old San Juan, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
