5:30 PM - 7:00 PM: Cookbook & Media Awards 

We all work hard at our craft, and goodness knows we’re not doing it for the big bucks. The greatest reward for the efforts of a culinary professional is recognition from their peers. At this fast-paced awards ceremony, we’ll deliver the ultimate kudos for cookbooks, multi-media, and journalism. Join your colleagues as we say yes to the best.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM: Creative Showcase

Formerly known as “Book and Blog,” the Creative Showcase is a lively evening that celebrates creativity in culinary communications. On deck, a wide range of content creators – cookbook authors, bloggers, photographers, website designers…all are welcome to exhibit, and cookbooks will be sold.

This is the chance for attendees to get autographs from favorite authors, find a new photographer for their marketing campaign, make that coveted blogger-brand connection, and otherwise just have a good time. Food, drinks, hang out space are all part of the scene.

PLUS Ten-Minute Mentor sessions: opportunities to meet with senior editors, publishers, agents, and experienced videographers and photographers for exclusive networking and feedback sessions. 

The Creative Showcase will be open to the public, so exhibitors will get the chance to reach out to a wider audience.
