IACC 2021 Copper Skillet – U.S. Cook-off Chef Registration

IACC recognizes the vital role that foodservice plays in conference centre operations. As a result, we are proud to announce the Annual Copper Skillet Global Chef of the Year Competition.

This competition is designed to highlight the artistry and skills of IACC-member conference centre chefs from around the world and to honor their contributions to our shared goal of providing an outstanding conference experience.

There are two categories of entry:

  1. A senior category (26 years of age and older)
  2. A junior category (under 26 years).

Both categories compete in the same cook-off, with the same competition rules.

The IACC U.S. Cook-off will be held on Tuesday, July 20, 2021. Chefs will have the choice to compete in one of three IACC venues.

  • Summit Chicago | 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. CT
  • Chase Center on the Riverfront | Delaware | 1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET
