SNAC International has revamped SNAXPO to make it a must-attend event for snack companies in both the traditional and 'better-for-you' arenas. One of the changes includes shortening SNAXPO from three days to two compact days of education, networking, and innovation like never before. 

SNAXPO18 will take place March 12-14, 2018, in Atlanta. Unlike any other industry event, it showcases innovation for every aspect of the market, bringing together suppliers and producers, innovators and game-changers from the entire snack supply chain. 2018 is SNAXPO's biannual "big event"—a Full Equipment Show that puts industry solutions on display like nowhere else.

SNAXPO's biennial full equipment manufacturing show will bring together the global snack industry to fuel imagination, spark new ideas, enable development and production, and equip attendees to answer the demand for tomorrow's hottest snack products. Insightful Keynotes will provide attendees with the resources they need to stay on top of the trends and ahead of the curve.

"Our goal is to provide the industry with the most compelling content and resources available to help snack professionals grow their businesses, sharpen their skills, stay current and find the next innovation," said Elizabeth Avery, SNAC International president & CEO. "Wherever you are in the snack supply chain—a startup, a midsized company or a multinational corporation—SNAXPO 18 is the perfect place to experience game-changing, thought provoking and inspirational ideas vital to your company's growth and competitive success."

Best-selling author and marketing professor at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Jonah Berger will welcome industry manufacturers, marketers and suppliers from around the world on opening morning, March 13. Dr. Berger has spent over 15 years studying how social influence works and how it drives products and ideas to catch on. He published these insights in his New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-seller, Contagious: Why Things Catch On and in his latest release, Invisible Influence. Dr. Berger has helped organizations from Fortune 500 companies to small start-ups, and multinationals to non-profits drive new product adoption, sharpen effective messaging, and develop marketing strategy.

Wednesday, March 14 will feature a motivational and inspirational keynote from former SEAL Team Six leader and New York Times best-selling author Rob O'Neill. O'Neill will present on his mantra "never quit," and will share lessons drawn from his extraordinary experiences as one of the most highly-decorated combat veterans of our time. O'Neill is the author of best-selling memoir The Operator: Firing the Shots That Killed Osama bin Laden and My Years as a SEAL Team Warrior. O'Neill was deployed more than a dozen times and held combat leadership roles in more than 400 combat missions in four different theaters of war. O'Neill brings his unique expertise to organizations and translates his elite SEAL team training into high-impact, actionable insights on leadership, decision-making, and how to become the 'best of the best.'
