SNAC International has announced SNX 2024, taking place April 14–16, 2024 in Dallas, TX at the Hyatt Regency Dallas. Serving as a complement to SNAXPO, SNX is SNAC International’s education and collaboration forum designed to spark dialogue, innovation, and growth, helping snack brands and manufacturers build deeper relationships across the entire supply chain. 

"We are pleased to host SNX 2024 and provide a forum for snack professionals to come together to do business more efficiently," said Christine Cochran, CEO at SNAC International. "Not only does this conference foster collaboration and inspire innovation, SNX is the premier business event for industry suppliers and producers to meet one-on-one to discuss current and future business opportunities.” 

At SNX, industry suppliers will host their own private meeting rooms allowing them to pre-schedule meetings with snack producer customers and prospects. Additionally, SNX’s Experience Zone enables attendees to network informally and collaborate with suppliers at each step of the snack production process, as well as learn about the latest innovations and hot topics via the SNAC Bites pop-up education to deliver a comprehensive learning experience for all attendees.
