Sponsorship & Exhibitor Opportunities

For companies and professionals working in food product development and innovation, the annual RCA Conference is a can’t miss opportunity to engage with the RCA community. Our Culinology® Expo is the venue to launch new and promote existing innovative products which exemplify Culinology® — the blending of culinary arts and food science. 

Interest and demand far outpaced the event capacity last year, selling out both the Culinology® Expo and overall registration. Annual conference sponsor and exhibitor purchasing will become available on August 8, 2024.
