This is a modification from the previously announced dates, July 26-30.

All reference to the 2007 Annual Meeting + Food Expo® by IFT will reflect the new dates, July 28-31, as should all reference to the convention by others.

The conference will be conducted in Chicago McCormick Place Convention Center.

Reflective of the new dates, the format for all Annual Meeting scientific and technical presentations has been condensed by one half-day into a full three-day schedule, July 29-31.
