TGCon's purpose is to provide the inspiration, education, and the community you need to transform your business. But ultimately, our attendees take away new connections with industry peers, innovative ways to make their jobs easier, and insights that make them valuable assets to their companies.
TGCon attendees can expect to learn the ins and outs of the TraceGains' software/new features and the latest industry trends.
Additionally, we'll have a full day of insights and presentations from your industry peers. This allows you to better understand how food manufacturers, processors, and distributors leverage the TraceGains platform on a daily basis to improve processes and finished goods, and be 365 Audit Ready™. In years prior we have had great presentations from companies such as Bimbo Bakeries, Topco Associates, Pinnacle Foods, Sensient Technologies, McKee Foods, Bay Valley Foods, AdvancePierre, Specialty Commodities, and others. We are working very hard to make 2017 better still.
We will also offer plenty of opportunity during the days for networking with your peers to help you get the knowledge exchange you are seeking. Deals have been made and alliances forged—don’t miss out!
Join fellow TraceGains customers from the food and beverage industry. TraceGains customers represent a variety of business sizes with fellow users ranging in job titles from Quality Manager to Chief Operating Officer.
TGCon 2017 will feature customized learning tracks, peer presentations from customers, industry experts, and TraceGains functional leaders, as well as plenty of networking opportunities throughout the event.
These hands-on training tracks provide customer attendees with guided learning and group activities to support collaboration and understanding of the topics.

A tool like TraceGains is only as powerful as the people who are trained to use it. Does your team have the skills and knowledge needed to fully reap the benefits of the TraceGains system cross-departmentally?
We’ve officially opened our call-for-speakers submission form, and we’d love to hear your ideas!
First, a few details...
Please note that the deadline for submissions is May 1, 2017. However, we will be approving select speakers on a “rolling” basis.
Most presentations will be 30-minute sessions delivered by either a solo speaker or a duo of speakers, all with a few minutes towards the end of each for any questions the audience might have. Please propose your session with that level of depth in mind. (In a few cases, we may reach out to you to join a panel discussion as well.)
We’re looking for session proposals that are “graduate level” in nature — not food safety 101 — where speakers will be able to teach our audience something new and meaningful from their experience.
You may also volunteer to participate in a panel discussion with a group of like-minded TraceGains customers to discuss topics such as FSMA challenges, practical compliance advice, etc. If interested, simply indicate "Panel" in the form and we will reach out with more details.
Here are a few topics from previous years to help jump start your brainstorming:
