The third annual Olive Oil Conference, co-hosted by the North American Olive Oil Association (NAOOA) and International Extra Virgin Olive Oil Savantes, will be held July 19 to July 20, 2017 at the Westin O’Hare in Rosemont, IL.

In addition, the conference welcomes health advocates, foodies, and culinary enthusiasts looking to expand and diversify their knowledge on the subject. The two-day conference will offer insights from experts related to health, cooking and trade -- with a focus on practical applications. In addition to topical sessions and cooking demonstrations, group workshops will offer attendees hands-on opportunities to cook (and eat!) foods inspired by olive oil as an ingredient. Attendees will gain first-hand experience by tasting a wide range of oils and enjoying olive oil-focused meals.
