Association of Food Journalists 2016 Conference…in Seattle

Just a quick blog post to note that I am attending the Association of Food Journalists Annual Conference this week.

Held at the Seattle Sheraton today through Friday, September 23, the conference boasts a hefty lineup of speakers, tours and great topics. The conference launches this morning with a keynote address from Dorothy Kalins, the founding editor of Saveur Magazine. Kalins will discuss how to navigate today’s fast paced publishing landscape.

Later in the morning there will be presentations from AllRecipes and ChefSteps. Both will discuss how they bring recipes and techniques to the table. In the afternoon we will be treated to a lengthy insider’s tour of the historic Pike Place Market.

Tomorrow, we get Tipping Point…a discussion from Renee Erickson, Jerry Traunfeld and Tom Douglas addressing Seattle’s movement to abolish tipping.

Follow me on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook as I post live tidbits from the conference. The hashtag is #AFJ2016. I’ll also try to write subsequent posts regarding these discussions once the conference is over and I am back at my desk. Stay tuned.
