Food Carts Portland is pleased to announce our partnership in Roam – the first ever North American food conference serving the mobile food industry. Roam will be held in Portland, Oregon September 13-15, 2013 and features speakers, educational sessions, events and more.

Education tracts are grouped for those just starting out in the industry, seasoned mobile vendors who want to grow, non-profits and community organizations who want to incorporate mobile vending, government urban planners and policy makers, and those who serve the mobile food industry. Roam showcases business education, technology and other innovations, menu and concept planning, marketing for mobile, and more. Expect fun events  such as food cart lunches, a special happy hour, and citywide tours featuring some of Portland’s 600+ food carts and some of the best street food from all over North America. For those interested in starting their own mobile business, Roam has put together a special one-day “Start-up Boot Camp” for mobile vending. Think of it as a crash course in all things mobile.  And Roam isn’t just about mobile food. Expect to see trends in mobile retail and mobile promotions, too.

We’ll be providing updates and more information as the conference develops including speaker  announcements, sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities, and event details. For more information and to sign up for Roam news, please go to or email
