Vandal Voices: How Smart Marketers Influence the Way We Eat

June 6, 2019
5:30-6:30 p.m.
Amsterdam Lounge (609 W Main St, Boise)

Americans have never been more interested in food, and how we shop, consume, prepare and eat is constantly evolving. Food trends, modern lifestyles, disposable income, family dynamics and more affect our choices, but how much are we being influenced by the environments in which we shop for food? From the Farmers’ Market booth to the superstore, sophisticated visual, marketing and psychological principles are purposefully being applied in subtle and not so subtle ways to nudge us toward decisions. 

Are you immune to the power of persuasion? In this interactive session, we’ll test your “shopper IQ” and reveal some secrets behind the strategies food marketers use to tempt us, persuade us, and sometimes plain confound us!

The event is free and open to the public 21 years old and older.
