CFESA Join Forces With FEDA And NAFEM For Multi-Association Summit

CFESA

Signed up yet for the big meeting next month?

CFESA will join two of the industry's other major associations, FEDA and NAFEM, for their first-ever combined meeting March 21-25. The Big Three are unveiling plans for next year and beyond with The Future Starts Here: E&S Industry Summit at the JW Marriott Desert Springs Resort & Spa in Palm Desert, Calif. The groundbreaking multi-association industry summit brings together key channel partners to take a deep dive into issues and combines the best of each group’s own annual meetings. Participants are guaranteed keynote, panel and roundtable discussions on trends, customer issues, marketing and value-added services, as well as abundant opportunities for networking in an always-open networking lounge.

All three groups will host individual committee and board meetings on Wednesday before the conference officially kicks off that evening with a networking reception and dinner. A combination of educational formats will be offered on the following days, including keynote presentations, panel discussions, and facilitated, interactive roundtables. Thursday centers on the future of foodservice with discussions zeroing in on micro and macro trends in business, in the E&S industry, and in customers that will shape the industry for the next decade. Friday focuses on how industries with complicated distribution channels can evolve and change to meet the marketplace’s growing demands and the roles of technology, innovation, service, and product development. Saturday will include more presentations and roundtables as well as golf and tennis tournaments, and end with the summit’s closing party.

Registration is now open on CFESA’s website; hotel rooms can be booked there as well.
