MAD Symposium 2018: Apply Now to Join in


Rene Redzepi and team are all set to return with the big red tent at 'Mad Symposium' in RefshaleĂžen Copenhagen for two days this summer, from 26 to 27 August.

This is the food symposium with a difference where those attending, as well key note speakers, are hand picked in order to encourage active participation in the industry led conversations that unfold during the presentations.

Those lucky enough to attend this year will explore topical issues affecting the food world. This year's topic up for debate is: "as individuals and an industry - how can we create a world where opportunities are available to all people."

Applications close: 15 April
