IFT16 Division Networking Reception a hit!

IFT16 Reception 3This annual reception at IFT’s annual speed-networking event showcases IFT’s 24 Divisions, or special interest groups, as they come together in one place to make new connections and recruit volunteers.

This year, volunteers at each Division’s table took pictures of attendees with polaroid cameras. Over 350 polaroid pictures were posted to a large wall, showing how we’re all connected! The winner was Ziynet Boz, who won $500 to put toward travel to IFT17 in Las Vegas!

Almost 900 folks came to the event to meet with Division leaders and network with others who share similar interests in the areas of Product Development, Sensory & Consumer Sciences, Food Packaging, Nutrition, Protein, and more. Almost 600 people signed up to get more involved with year-round Division activities!
