Join Us In Chicago!

Conveniently located only minutes from downtown Chicago, IFT18 will be held at the McCormick Place convention center, North America's premier convention facility. Discounted hotel rooms have been secured for our IFT guests.

In July, Chicago has average highs of 84°F (29°C) and average lows of 66°F (19°C). Prior to traveling to Chicago for the meeting, you may wish to check the  Chicago 10-day weather forecast. 

Attire at IFT18 is business casual. Since meeting room temperatures and personal comfort ranges may vary, a light sweater or jacket is recommended. Also, you may wish to wear comfortable shoes, as walking distances within McCormick Place can be long.

We will be adding more extensive venue information in the coming weeks. Please check back next month for more details. 


If you’re serious about advancing your career, business, research, or the science of food and technology, then you can’t afford to miss IFT18.
