Learn from industry experts, share your knowledge

The most difficult part about starting or growing a juice bar or juice company is getting access to experienced professionals and all of the specialized knowledge they possess. I’ve traveled all over the world visiting juice business owners, and a frequent request is that Goodnature put together an event where passionate juicing experts can get together and share information. We’re finally doing it.

We’re assembling an inspiring lineup of speakers, panelists and guests to kick off the first JuiceCon this November 10 & 11 in Venice Beach, California— the Juice Mecca. The speakers and panel discussion will take place in the Rose Room  (limited to 200 guests), and we are renting a space across the street at Air Venice where we will offer hands-on juicing training on Goodnature equipment, group discussions, and other breakout sessions with juicing experts. Each breakout session will be limited to 20-30 guests.

Ticket prices will be decided soon as we are still putting together our budget. Pre-register today to get early access.

Topics for presentations, panels, and  breakout sessions will include (subject to change):

  • Shelf life and preservation
  • Growing your juice business
  • Marketing and branding
  • Recipe development
  • The Juicing Companion book launch
  • Reducing waste
  • Hands on juicing training
  • Group discussions
  • And more

Speakers, panelists, and breakout room instructors include (subject to change):

  • Jimmy Rosenberg – Founder, Evolution Fresh (current), Founder, Naked Juice (previous)
  • Daina Slekys Trout – Co-Founder and CEO, Health-Ade Kombucha
  • Kaitlin Mogentale and Ashley Miyaski – Co-Founders, Pulp Pantry
  • Joyce Longfield – Chairperson, Cold Pressure Council (HPP)
  • Jordan Rosendale – Founder and CEO, JK Juices
  • Andrew McFarlane – Founder and CEO, StartAJuicebar.com
  • Kenny Lao – Founder, Culinary Task Force
  • Ari Sexner  – Chef & Juice Business Consultant, Goodnature
  • Charlie Wettlaufer – President, Goodnature
  • More to come!

Ticket prices, speakers, product give-aways and other details are still being finalized, but make sure to pre-register to get early access to tickets and other details. I promise this is something you don’t want to miss.

Networking:

We have rented out the Rose Cafe in Venice beach after the first day of the event and will be enjoying food and drinks from 5:15 – 7:15. Looking forward to meeting so many juice entrepreneurs in one place!

Accommodations:

We have reserved a block of rooms at a negotiated group rate with Loews Santa Monica Beach Hotel, you can book them here, until October 10, 2018 or until supply lasts.

About The Author

Instagram: @cwjuice

I’ve been around juicing all my life. My Dad built his first hydraulic juice press in 1976 and founded the company Goodnature Products, Inc. I have incredible memories of having “cider parties” when we would invite all the people in our rural neighborhood over to make apple juice. To this day, when I taste apple juice made on a Goodnature press, a rush of nostalgia runs through my body.

I pride myself on guiding our clients into the world of cold-pressed juice and showing them how much fun this industry can be. I love talking business, technology, and marketing.

  8. I have had a Juice Bar Juice4life for 6 years and the secret to juices is that you can drink your vegetables. But the problem is that in juice bars today still, there is not a variety of juices that includes celery, zucchini, parsley, cucumber, Brussel sprouts, rhubarb, added herbs, spinach, and many other varieties of vegetables.

    I have actually discovered how to turn these vegetables into healthy delicious juices and I challenge anyone to taste them and see if they disagree!

  11. Hi, will the conference include sessions, demos and equipment related to citrus juicing?

    Reply

    1. There may be some discussion around citrus-only equipment and juice, but it will not be a focus. The focus will be on cold-pressed juice that includes varieties of different fruits and vegetables.
