RCA had a successful  2016 Annual Conference & Culinology®  Expo in  the Mile High City. There's more to Denver than the beautiful blue skies and snowcapped mountains! Being a hub for many chef-owned, neighborhood restaurants, there were countless must-try eateries that our member's were able to check out. The  Denver Post  has tagged the gastropub trend as “It's Cheers meets charcuterie.”

There were more than 1,200 top food product development professionals at this year's conference, as well as top-notch food, killer education and the best in Culinology®.


  • More than 25 educational sessions, demos, workshops, optional tours and tastings led by the foremost leaders in food R&D
  • The opportunity to fit in as many local meals (and craft beers) as you can into four days
  • VIP passes to the Student & Professional Culinology®  Competition
  • High-energy networking events from the Opening Reception to the closing Awards Ceremony and Celebration
