National Technical Seminar

The National Technical Seminar will be taking place in person September 20 – 22, 2021, in Oak Brook, Illinois.

As we plan for the seminar, we are in frequent contact with the hotel and conference center to ensure we are putting proper COVID-19 safety measures into place, including: 

  • Requiring all attendees to wear masks indoors 
  • Relocating meals to outside patio space as much as possible 
  • Ensuring social distancing throughout the event
  • Keeping abreast of DuPage Country Health & Safety Guidelines updates

The AACT National Seminar conference is held annually during the fall to technologists in the sweet goods industry. The conference is comprised of non-commercial seminar presentations, round table discussions and social gatherings including the infamous Iron Confectioner competition. Presentations range from basics to innovations, providing the industry with practical information to help in understanding processes and ingredients used by their companies.
