Conference and Event Discovery Platform Feeds Food & Wine Festivals to Fast-Growing Food and Drink Site

Conference Hound (, the San Francisco-based conference discovery platform, has launched its content syndication program with the fast growing new mega-food and drink site The Daily Meal. Under the agreement, The Daily Meal now carries a feed or “widget” containing a constantly updated stream of food and wine festivals from around the world on its home page. This content, highly relevant to The Daily Meal’s two million unique monthly visitors is the first large-scale syndication of Conference Hound’s filtered conference, trade show and event content.

Conference Hound provides publishers and bloggers with industry-, city- or speaker-specific widgets, which include hundreds of fields and locales as well as thousands of lecturers. The company has also set up agreements to roll out widgets to additional categories including mobile developers, trade associations, vertical blogs and music festival sites over the next few weeks.

Conference Hound CEO Bruce Carlisle commented on the partnership, “We couldn’t have found a better site to launch syndication of our brand content. The Daily Meal reaches millions of loyal users every month, and we’re happy to provide them with relevant, useful, curated and updated content.”

“The Conference Hound food and wine festival widget provides a great service to our readers,” said Colman Andrews, Editorial Director of The Daily Meal. “Our audience travels widely in search of the best food and drink, and our Conference Hound component gives them much useful, up-to-date information about what's going on in the culinary world.”

The Conference Hound Industry Widget is easily available to any Web publisher or blog at Developers and webmasters select an industry and retrieve a high performance, non-blocking JavaScript embed code that can be placed on any website. The widget is “fluid” in that it will expand or shrink to match any site layout.
