Event Features

In addition to meeting with leading suppliers privately in the  Supplier Suites, take time to further expand your experience at SNX. The Experience Zone enables attendees to network informally and collaborate with suppliers at each step of the snack production process, as well as learn about the latest innovations and hot topics via our SNAC Bites pop-up education 


Walk through five focused areas exploring every element of the supply chain, through the product development process, from raw ingredients to shelf. Approach top suppliers with your biggest questions and most pressing challenges at any time. No sign-up required.


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.  


Held within the Experience Zone, this area is designated for attendees to listen in on the most up to date industry trends, success stories, and so much more. Each session is only 20-minutes long giving you plenty of time to listen in on a session of your choice between all the fun activities in the zones.  

Only a limited number of opportunities are available for participating suppliers to deliver a brief, 20-minute snack industry educational presentation related to their designated zone. Submit a proposal to apply to host a presentation in your zone.
