Yeah, we go all-in on online – for known reasons – but that brings lots of positives! We have DOUBLED DOWN on exciting content and made the conference FREE. We're going to have the best and most democratic foodtech conference ever! 

Bold ideas, stunning demos and insightful comments galore! You will come out smarter and better equipped to face the ever-increasing pace of disruption in the global food system. We will talk about stuff like dark kitchens, food robots, the nutritional data tsunami, AI, new food products, the protein shift, how nimble and well-financed startups poach the best talent from the incumbents and much, much more. Did we mention all the participating top chefs, scientists and athletes? Now we have!

This year the Big Meet will be running sessions for two days from our virtual studio at the magic VOLVO showroom, downtown Stockholm.

While we would love to meet you live and show you Stockholm – the Future Food City of the World – we also love the fact that we now can meet so many more of you online.
