More personal than a conference.
More impactful than a meeting.

FaBLE is a conference unlike any other. Since 1994, our focus has been on building partnerships and communities amongst industry leaders through open and honest dialogue. By design, the content here is different from anything you’ll find in the industry. Together we tackle the most challenging issues and leave inspired to make the industry, and our communities, a better place. FaBLE is invitation-only and limited to 100 participants. As always, families of attendees are encouraged to attend and participate.

Mike Wigell, founder of the original Food Service Economic Summit (FSES) founded in 1994, had a vision that food industry leaders could actually get together and solve problems rather than just hear about them. The Food Service Economic Summit was renamed FaBLE: Food and Beverage Leadership Exchange in 2011.

“The industry is full of events where you go, hear the problems, and then leave without any real discussion of how to solve them” was a familiar line from Mike as he built the conference early on. Mike believed that if you brought a group of people together, kept it small, and had representation from all links in the supply chain, honest dialogue and information sharing could result from such a setting. Though Mike Wigell passed away in 1999, his legacy and vision lives on through this one-of-a-kind event.
