The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) in the United States is transitioning its October 19-21, 2020 Convention to a virtual format. An agenda featuring three full days of online customer appointments will allow frozen and refrigerated food industry executives to discover new products, connect with partners and grow their business.
According to the NFRA, the virtual event will provide “the same exceptional convention experience with more flexibility and unique meeting opportunities. All attendees can participate in customer business meetings that can be set up with an easy online scheduling tool. Registration includes access to the Virtual Exhibit Hall featuring manufacturers, suppliers and logistics providers of all sizes, as well as access to the New Product Showcase. Hundreds of Retailer Speed Meeting appointment slots, reserved for small manufacturers, ensure start-up companies can meet with major retailers.”
The Convention kicks off on Monday, October 19, with a live presentation from keynote speakers Anna Palmer, senior Washington correspondent, and Jake Sherman, senior writer, for Politico. Tuesday and Wednesday, October 20 and 21, will start with educational sessions including a Covid-19 update from Colin Stewart, executive vice president of business intelligence for Acosta Sales & Marketing.
The registration fee is $325 for NFRA members and $1,500 for non-members. Retailers and wholesalers receive complimentary registration.
The online scheduling platform is set to open at the beginning of September. Those interested in attending can check the convention website at NFRAConvention.org for the most current information and to register, or phone the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania-headquartered trade association: +1 717-657-8601.
