With two weeks to go before The Convenience Culture LIVE Breakfast Forum is staged in Melbourne, here's a look at who's coming, and why you should join them.

In recent months there has been a veritable proliferation of on-the-go snack and ready meal product launches, so it comes as no surprise that there's high interest in a forum covering the convenience megatrend, and particularly in how it is influencing new product development, and also our packaging choices. This will be the focus of the Food & Drink Business LIVE Breakfast Forum, to be held on 12 October at Arts Centre in Melbourne.
