Keynote Session

Amanda Hesser, Founder and CEO of Food52
Sunday, March 6 • 12-1 PM (CT)
Grand Ballroom, Room S100

Hesser’s insights on the housewares omni-channel industry and her unique perspective on how Food52 has evolved will provide a welcome re-engagement of in-person storytelling for the industry after two years of being unable to hear directly from peers about challenges, strategies and success stories.

She will share her perspectives on how the Food52 brand pioneered the convergence of new consumer media with innovative merchandising and marketing to create an untraditional, yet authentic, dynamic and influential content-driven marketplace.

Prior to founding Food52, Hesser was a reporter, feature writer and food editor at The New York Times, and she also authored several award-winning books. She is the co-author of three Food52 cookbooks.
