IDDBA 2023 is about converging the now with the next. The world of business continues to stabilize after lengthy disruptions in the recent years. In Anaheim, IDDBA members, exhibitors, and attendees will experience the now of trends, tastes, and technologies which is the foundation of what happens next.
FIVE TRENDS THAT WILL DRIVE 2023
This year’s flagship event will bring IDDBA’s five guiding trends to life:
- Whole Health, Whole Self, Whole Heart
- Consumer Defined Convenience
- ABC’s of ESG
- Worth the Value
- Innovation and Technology
These macro trends were developed for IDDBA’s digital trends publication “What’s in Store”. Using a plethora of data and industry expertise, the trends revolve around consumer behavior and shopping patterns that are emerging and will hold fast into the future.
EUROPE, HEART OF INNOVATION
Flavor and ingredient trends often start in Europe. Attendees will be hungry to reconnect with Italian companies at IDDBA 2023 to see what product innovations and tastes are headed to the US. Retailers are anxious to see what products will set them apart from competition while meeting the needs of the forever changed consumer.

OH and those who are feeling adventurous can even eat a scorpion! IDDBA 2023 has an amazing lineup of speakers in the General Sessions including Alton Brown, Padma Lakshmi, and Tom Hanks.
