Friends and food just go together. That’s why we built food into three of the four (yes–four) networking events during the upcoming PRSA Game Changers conference in Seattle. From your Welcome Reception with cocktails and pie, to Dine Around events with session speakers to a pre-conference Foodie Walking Tour, you’ll be noshing it up with your newfound friends. And, you can run that all off with a sunrise morning networking run with Wired’s Editor in Chief Nick Thompson and Microsoft’s Frank Shaw. But first–the food….
Ever wonder what it takes to bring Top Chef to your city? How easy is it to break into the food industry with a new techie culinary tool for home cooks? We’ve combined communications, food and networking with a fun pre-conference Foodie Walking Tour of iconic Pike Place Market before the sessions start!
As a conference attendee, lace up your walking shoes on Sunday morning and join David Blandford, APR, from Visit Seattle to hear the behind-the-scenes scoop on what it took to bring Bravo’s Top Chef Seattle to the Emerald City. After the non-disclosure agreements are out of the way (just kidding-kind of…), you’ll meet Amy Hatch, Communications Director for ChefSteps; a food and tech startup developing technology tools to help us all cook smarter. Amy will share the joys, and the challenges of breaking into the food industry with a super cool kitchen tool named Joule. Grab a latte and head to the Pike Place Market where a Savor Seattle tour guide will show you why they’re described by Bon Appetit as “A must on any foodie traveler’s list.” A friendly Savor Seattle tour guide will take you to nosh at some of the most iconic Pike Place Market locations, including a stop to indulge in one of Oprah’s favorite things. Plus, you’ll have a chance to win a free Joule!
Monday night you can get to know your session speakers even better over dinner at some of Seattle’s best restaurants in the popular Dine Around event. Seafood with Emmy-winning TV producer Kelly Guenther, Japanese cuisine with Kaiser’s Carmella Gutierrez, farm to table fare with Microsoft’s Danny Chung, or classic American with data storytellers Reiny Cohen and Catherine Hinrichsen.
But to get in on this you need to register for the conference, and sign up in advance. See you in Seattle!
