EDUCATION ARENA

In the Education Arena, you will engage with keynote speakers and breakout education sessions addressing the hottest topics in snacks and emerging industry trends vital to your success.

The popular SNAC Tank pitch competition returns for the third time at SNX, the education and networking forum from SNAC International. Featuring guest judge Daymond John, Founder of FUBU and Star of  ABC’s hit reality series “Shark Tank,”the competition will provide innovative start-up brands the chance to pitch their products to a panel of expert judges. The winner will take home a $10,000 cash prize and gain important resources and connections with industry mentors to help scale-up, as well as valuable visibility opportunities.
