KibbleCon at Kansas State University

If you are involved or interested in working with the pet food industry, you are encouraged to attend KibbleCon 2022. The in-person event will be Oct. 19-21 at the Bluemont Hotel in Manhattan. 

This year's speaker lineup is filled with top pet food visionaries and influencers who will discuss everything from palatability to packaging, safety to supply chains. View the full list of speakers and itinerary on the KibbleCon website.

To register at no cost, K-State faculty and staff should use the code, facultykc22. K-State students should use the code, studentkc22. Online registration closes on Oct. 16 and attendance is limited, so don't delay. 

Are you a student with research relevant to pet food? Submit your poster abstract to Stephanie Pierce, at smpierce@k-state.edu, by Sept. 30 to be entered into a poster presentation competition. The top submissions will be asked to present their research at KibbleCon for a chance to win scholarships — first place will receive $500 and second place will receive $300.

KibbleCon was created by the K-State Pet Food Program and K-State Innovation Partners and is a place to have honest conversations on the future of the industry with pet food visionaries and industry influencers. Since 2017, K-State has hosted an annual Pet Food R&D Showcase featuring networking, cutting-edge research and interactive experiences with top pet food supplies. As the experience progressed, the event was rebranded to KibbleCon.

KibbleCon sponsors attending include Extru-Tech Inc., National Corn Growers Association, Balchem, the F.L. Emmert Company, Eurofins, Nutrios, Parker Freeze Dry, United Sorghum Checkoff Program, Kansas Department of Agriculture, International Ingredient Corporation, Petfood Forum — Watt Global Media and NielsenIQ.

Note: If COVID-19 protocols necessitate a change to the format of the event, registrants will be notified by email.
