International Foodservice Editorial Council
AMO | WordPress | Custom Plugin
IFEC is comprised of professionals coming together to exchange ideas, share resources and confer on editorial content for foodservice-engaged readers.
We have been working with IFEC since 2009. Originally starting with a website and an early version of AMO, the relationship led to a collaboration developing a custom app for them that plugged-in to the AMO event registration system and a new WordPress website.

“To the Terrific Trio: John Fischer, Matt Knipschield and Michael Sasorith. Thanks for all your help with the IFEC site, you all rock. Oh and David Carnes is pretty good too :)”
The app is the IFEC Office Hour plug-in and it has become one of the most popular aspects of their annual conference. Editors and publishers set aside time over the course of the conference (office hours) when they can meet with writers, brands and content providers to discuss how they may be able to work together. The app automatically assigns attendee writers to time slots with the editors. Communicating and coordinating the schedules, meeting locations, times, and attendee data is all handled automatically via AMO behind the scenes. This has been a great tool for IFEC to help build professional networks and community for IFEC.
