The Philly Chef Conference is hosted by Drexel's Center for Food and Hospitality Management. Drexel University's vision is based on providing students with real world education while also being engaged in their local community. The mission of this annual conference is to engage our student with industry leaders while also connecting members of the restaurant community through a day of education.
The conference is an annual event designed to convene the regional food community and to showcase the latest food and beverage ideas and techniques through educational lectures, panel discussions, and demonstrations. It brings together the best chefs, food producers, and personalities and links established food and hospitality professionals with aspiring students and young industry professionals.
The first day of the conference is open to the general public and will feature educational lectures on the latest topics of interest in food and beverage.
The second day of the conference is dedicated exclusively to hospitality and restaurant professionals and will feature educational lectures, industry discussions and demonstrations.
