In light of the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, the Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA-headquartered National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) has announced it will transition the 2020 NFRA Convention to a virtual format over the same dates, October 19-20, 2020.
This annual event, which was scheduled to take place at the Gaylord National Resort in National Harbor, Maryland, will continue to be a platform for frozen food industry executives to discover new products, connect with business partners and grow their business.
“With more flexibility, lower registration fees and no travel expenses, we hope to maximize participation with a new virtual format while providing the same excellence in programming, the latest information on what is happening in our industry and new opportunities for conducting business and networking,” said NFRA President and CEO Skip Shaw.
Registration and hotel fees deposited for the in-person convention are being refunded. NFRA is finalizing details on the new agenda and online delivery platform. More information and registration for the virtual event will be available in the coming weeks.
“While the current environment has forced us to modify our delivery, we look forward to providing an NFRA Convention experience that meets the needs of the industry and that no one will want to miss,” said Shaw.
