ROAM Conference: November 8-9, 2014

Since I started focusing on food trucks, I’m always looking for unique events. One event that I had not found was an industry or professional-type event centered on the mobile food industry. And then I heard about ROAM.

Roam Mobile Food Conference discusses topics important to those in the mobile food industry. The conference is divided into two days of sessions on food truck information. The first day provides topics on Health Inspections, Legal issues, and general issues. The second day offers more specialized discussions with concurrent sessions discussing Social Media, Business Planning, Business Growth, and more. While the event is held in San Antonio, the speakers are from other food truck areas like Minneapolis, Portland, Chicago, and more. The multiple areas brings value of different perspectives and experiences on what worked and did not work in those areas.

If you are interested in learning more about the industry or perhaps add a little spice to your mobile food business, I’d take a look at the sessions and panelists. The organizers are offering a $50 discount off the registration fee if you use OctSpecial50off code. Let me know if you plan on attending, it would be great to exchange ideas.
