Big news: Smart Kitchen Summit is headed to Europe.

That’s right, our event focused on the future of food and cooking will take place in Dublin on June 12th, 2018 at the Guinness Storehouse.

So, why take SKS to Europe?

It’s pretty simple. When we created the Smart Kitchen Summit in 2015, I knew the digitization of the kitchen and cooking had just begun. I also knew that the conversation about where it is going was one that would involve voices from around the world.

Europe was – and still is – in many ways leading that conversation.

And this year as I continued to observe European cooking and appliance brands doing interesting work in new cooking technologies, along with the groundbreaking research being done on food science across the region, and the incredible groundswell of startup innovation emerging across the European food and cooking ecosystem, I knew 2018 was the year we needed to bring our event to Europe.

I couldn’t be more excited to bring our event to Dublin, one of my favorite cities in the Europe, and I couldn’t think of a better venue than the Guinness Storehouse at St. James Gate.

See you in Dublin!

SKS Heads to Europe in June 2018

Smart Kitchen Summit, the leading event and community focused on the future of food, cooking and the kitchen is expanding into Europe with its first-ever SKS EU on June 12, 2018 at the Guinness Storehouse in Dublin, Ireland. Entering its fourth year, SKS is a global event series that brings together powerhouse line-ups of startups, leaders and innovators across food, tech, design, commerce, appliances and housewares.

SKS EU will explore the impact that technology has on the entire food ecosystem: from where and how food is grown to the global problem of food waste to making cooking good food at home easier and more accessible and using data to hack personal nutrition. Led by The Spoon founder and NextMarket Insights chief analyst Michael Wolf, SKS was founded to examine the ways that innovation is shifting the food, cooking and kitchen space and provide discussion, demonstrations and analysis from leaders around the world.

SKS EU will explore a cross-section of themes including:

  • The digitization of the senses and the evolution towards hyper-personalized food and nutrition
  • Increased transparency across the food system using technologies such as blockchain
  • The Internet of Food and the move to corral data and intelligence from the things we eat
  • AI, machine learning and how it’s transforming the methods and tools we use to cook and prepare food
  •  The reinvention of the kitchen as a living and activity space within the home

The first-ever European smart kitchen and food tech event will bring together leaders from some of Europe’s biggest food brands, appliance manufacturers and some of the most innovative startups across the food and cooking marketplace.
