About Up & Coming 2017

The Up and Coming Food Co-op Conference is focused on helping communities start their own food co-ops. This event also offers resources and workshops for co-ops in the first years of operation, with the aim of helping them achieve success.

Held each year since 2010, Up and Coming is coordinated by the Indiana Cooperative Development Center and its partner Food Co-op Initiative.  2017 marks a change in location for the conference.  We're moving to Milwaukee, WI! Our local food co-op host is Outpost Natural Foods.

We've got lots of great learning planned along with lots of networking and some FUN.

Up and Coming 2017 is scheduled for March 10-11 with an optional day of workshops/tours on March 9.  The conference will be held at the Intercontinental Milwaukee, 139 East Kilbourn Ave., Milwaukee, WI. Visit this website often for the latest news and updates.
