Pet food professionals registered for Petfood Forum 2016 can now access two convenient digital tools to help plan their conference experience. The Petfood Forum 2016 app is free. The app is available to help participants create a personalized conference schedule, learn about sessions, speakers and exhibitors, and find discounts at restaurants and attractions near the Kansas City Convention Center and conference hotels.
In addition, during Petfood Forum, participants can use the app to give immediate survey feedback on the sessions they attend and be eligible for a prize drawing. They can also see maps of the convention center, learn about the Petfood Forum Student Program and share their conference experience through social media, directly from the app.
Pet food professionals registered for Petfood Forum can also use the app to download preliminary versions of most of the conference session presentations via a special Petfood Forum proceedings website. You will need to use your email address and Petfood Forum registration password to log into the site. (If you do not remember your password, you will receive instructions to be reminded of the password or to reset it. For questions, please email email@example.com.)
Final versions of all presentations will be available for download from this website within a few weeks after Petfood Forum.
Petfood Forum 2016 takes place April 18-20, with Petfood Innovation Workshop: Meat and Novel Proteins scheduled for April 18. Discounts are available if you register for both events.
