The Purchasing Seminar

June 5 - June 7, 2016 at the Sheraton at Crown Center in Kansas City, MO

The Purchasing Seminar is designed for executives and managers who are involved with ingredient procurement, market analysis, risk assessment, supply chain management and corporate planning.


The program features presenters and panelists who will cover ingredient commodity markets, meat and poultry complex, weather, energy, the economy and Washington.

Two Grand Receptions in 2015

The Purchasing Seminar featured two off-site private cocktail parties. On Sunday, we returned to the historic Union Station for the second year in a row, and Monday evening our venue was KC Live! in the Power & Light District. Shuttles to both events picked up participants from the main Sheraton entrance approximately every five minutes.

2015 Pricing


In 2014 we relocated our main hotel/seminar location to accomodate our continued growth. After the continued positive feedback on the location we will again be at the Sheraton Kansas City Hotel in Crown Center.


Free shuttle service will continue to be offered from the hotel to the Plaza and surround area.


First Registrant: $1,380

Additional Registrants: $1,265


Early Bird Registration pricing was offered through May 15, 2015.

Attendees to the purchasing seminar are varied in their positions in the industry.  Our goal during the seminar is to help facilitate meetings between buyers and sellers attending the seminar.  An working attendee list will be available for download during the registration process and a final version will be available for download at the close of registration.
