Created by The Infatuation, EEEEEATSCON originated in Santa Monica in 2017 followed by its launch in New York City for the first time in the fall of 2018. The event is designed for people who want more from a food festival than just tasting portions and cooking demonstrations. With live music performances throughout the day and panels from thought leaders and industry pioneers, EEEEEATSCON is as much about connecting with a community and getting inspired as it is about eating and being entertained.
The Infatuation was acquired by JPMorgan Chase & Co. in 2021 to accelerate the firm’s investment in dining and further demonstrates JPMorgan Chase’s commitment to meeting customers where they are with exceptional benefits, useful content and one-of-a-kind experiences, at scale.
In addition to Chase Sapphire, other brand partners creating special experiences for EEEEEATSCON LA include: LaCroix, Toyota, Josh Cellars, Stella Artois and Cutwater.
