Joanna James, MAPP Founder & CEO and director and producer of the award-winning film, A Fine Line, saw how pivotal the inaugural conference MAPP hosted last year was for so many women who attended, “the most rewarding thing I kept hearing was ‘I don’t feel so alone anymore’ because women from nearly every state were represented learning from each other and also making friendships and business deals on the spot. The energy was incredible,” said James.

• The day begins with a panel featuring celebrity chefs and owners who are redefining restaurant operations based on health/well-being (Andrew Zimmern, Tiffany Derry, Lorena Garcia, Jason Hammel).
• At 4 PM, guests can attend the Road MAPP Live Pitch Session for a chance to win a $100k seed funding prize pool from PepsiCo, in-kind Hospitality & FOH.
• Starting at 7 PM, Miami Iron Side hosts a Food Wine & Spirits Festival w/ music, eating/drinking/dancing, plus a Top Chef presentation with emerging women chefs & Coté Miami cocktail activation.
