This year’s convention of the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (nfraweb.org) is still set for Oct. 19-20, but it will be a virtual event because of ongoing uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic.
The announcement was made June 1 by Skip Shaw, president and CEO of the Harrisburg, Pa.-based association. “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,” Shaw said.
Registration and hotel fees for the in-person event 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,” according to Shaw.
