  • Create a custom agenda including just the sessions you want to attend.
  • Bookmark speakers, exhibitors, and attendees.
  • Connect with attendees, speakers, and exhibitors.
  • Salivate over the banquet menus.

Step 1: Download the App

The app is available in three delicious flavors:

  • iOS (for iPhone and iPad)
  • Android
  • HTML5 (a browser-based app you can use on all platforms).

Click the download button below for your preferred platform.

Step 2: Log Into the App & Set Up Your Profile

To log into the app:

  • Enter the email you used to register for the conference.
  • Enter the password: RealFood4Life!

You can then set up your profile manually or automatically bring over your photo and basic profile information by connecting to LinkedIn. You can add as much or as little information as you like, but we recommend at least adding a first name, last name, and profile photo.

If you are not able to set up an account or successfully log in, please stop by the NTA booth in the lobby.
