Everyone loves food — everyone! Most people love Las Vegas as well. When you combine the two together, you get arguably the greatest day every single time. Luckily for foodies and partygoers who love Vegas, the Institute of Food Technologists 2017 Annual Meeting & Food Expo (IFT17) will be going down in Sin City on June 25-28.

Why should you go to IFT17? Look at all of these gems from iftevent.org to get a little taste of what is happening during the festivities.

“When you think of all that needs to be done, that must be done—to provide each and every person on the planet with a safe, nutritious and sustainable food supply—we think as one. Or at least we should. Because the power of many acting as one is game-changing.”

“IFT17 is where serious science of food professionals like you come to recharge, engage, and be blown away by the latest research, insights, and innovations. But, don’t take our word for it. Listen to colleagues from around the globe share why IFT17 is the preeminent science of food event of the year.”

According to the IFT website, there will be 20,000-plus attendees, 100-plus sessions and 1,200-plus exhibitors.

The Venetian will be used as the headquarter hotel while IFT17 will be held at the Sands Expo & Convention Center.

They even have a mobile app to help you navigate the convention.

If you are wanting to get a little loose while you are in Vegas, then make sure to head over to The LIGHT Vegas during all of the action. Not only will DJ Stevie J be doing a DJ set on Friday, June 23 but DJ Cobra will be bringing his talents to The LIGHT Vegas on Saturday, June 24. One more thing, fam… You can also get faded with Metro Boomin on Wednesday, June 28!


It’s going to be LIT, and we know you want to rage the night away while you are conquering Sin City!
