Just three weeks before the judg­ing begins, reg­is­tra­tion for entries closed last Saturday for this year’s New York International Olive Oil Competition. Organizers said more than 670 entries from 25 coun­tries were received, mak­ing the con­test once again the biggest of its kind.

Concurrent with the com­pe­ti­tion at the International Culinary Center in Soho, New York will be a two-day con­fer­ence fea­tur­ing world-renowned experts pre­sent­ing the lat­est infor­ma­tion on top­ics rang­ing from olive oil mar­ket­ing trends, pack­ag­ing design and brand-build­ing to mer­chan­dis­ing, import­ing and dis­tri­b­u­tion.

Renowned spe­cialty food mer­chant Steven Jenkins will be among the speak­ers at the 2014 NYIOOC.

The con­fer­ence sold out in just a few weeks. However, there is still an oppor­tu­nity to ben­e­fit from the pro­gram via live video stream. Starting today, sub­scrip­tions to the feed are avail­able on the event web­site, nyiooc.org.

Curtis Cord, pub­lisher of Olive Oil Times and NYIOOC pres­i­dent, said offer­ing stream­ing video was another way to extend the reach of the inno­v­a­tive con­fer­ence pro­gram and raise aware­ness of olive oil qual­ity and the other top­ics being explored.

The pro­gram will pro­vide atten­dees and view­ers around the world with highly inno­v­a­tive and prac­ti­cal ideas they can use to add value and build their busi­nesses,” said Cord. It’s one thing to iden­tify the year’s best olive oils each April at the world’s most impor­tant olive oil com­pe­ti­tion, but how can we reach the con­sumers who need them?”

The event will stream live video between 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM, (EDT / UTC‑4) on Tuesday April 8 and Wednesday, April 9. Subscribers to the feed will have access to a chat area where top­ics can be dis­cussed with other view­ers, and ques­tions can be posed to speak­ers as time allows.

The com­plete con­fer­ence pro­gram and event details can be found on the NYIOOC web­site.
