Ideation Task Force

Co-Chairperson - Todd Traynor-Corey, United Airlines 
The Ideation Task Force began in 2013 as an effort to expand the organization's scope beyond food and beverage and to add additional value for the IFSA membership.  Since then, the Ideation Task Force has brought forth the Onboard Innovation Pavilion to showcase how technology and food and beverage work together to provide excellent customer service and a memorable experience.  In addition, the task force launched the IFSA Mentorship Program in the fall of 2014 giving junior members of the onboard industry an opportunity to gain experience and knowledge from senior level members who are giving back to the industry.  You can look forward to additional programs and opportunities in 2015!
