Last year, we took the Smart Kitchen Summit abroad for the first time — to none other than Tokyo, Japan! In SKS founder Michael Wolf’s words:
“As we have grown SKS, I also realized early on that each region’s story is different, impacted by a unique mix of culture, business dynamics, and consumer tastes. Because of this, we decided would take SKS on the road, not only because I wanted to bring our community to other parts of the world, but also because I thought it important to incorporate these stories into our community as we look to help map the future of the kitchen.”
We’re thrilled to be bringing back Smart Kitchen Summit Japan for the second year! Once again we’re partnering with SigmaXYZ, one of the leading strategy consultancies in Japan, to bring you a dynamite lineup of executives, startups, and entrepreneurs leading in the food innovation space.
This time around we’ll be focusing on the companies and trends that are disrupting the meal journey, from flavor personalization to guided cooking to the future of protein. Taking the stage will be speakers Winnie Leung of Bits x Bites, a Chinese food tech accelerator; Kevin Yu, the CEO of smart cooking startup SideChef; and SKS favorite Jon Jenkins of Hestan Cue.
We’re looking forward to returning to Tokyo to continue to explore and push the boundaries on the technology, entrepreneurship, and business models which will impact the Japanese and Asian kitchens. There’s a lot of exciting innovation in the meal journey in Japan that’s set to change the face of food and cooking across the globe.
