The 2020 IFDA DSC is going virtual this fall!

Based on input from our Distribution Solutions Conference Planning Council, made up of 15+ foodservice distributors, the decision has been made to move the in-person Conference to a virtual program. The IFDA team is hard at work making the transition and more information will be available by the end of July.

The virtual platform will feature a robust and all encompassing platform for our Allied Members and Exhibitors. We are planning to feature:
  • Distribution Attendee Lists prior to DSC Direct to set appointments and see who is coming!
  • Video chats with customers
  • Networking Opportunities
  • Marketing and promotional opportunities
  • Logo and Product showcases
  • Giveaways
  • Sponsorships
  • Innovation Lab Upgrades
  • Custom Exhibitor Booth
  • Leaderboard to win prizes for attendees based on activities and booth visits

If I am a current exhibitor what happens to my booth space?
Please review the exhibitor prospectus for benefits and investment levels There are three levels: Basic, Premier, and Executive. Your exhibit level will depend on your prior booth size and investment committed to DSC. Specific details and committment forms will be sent in August.

What are my options regarding exhibit space and/or sponsorship payments I’ve already made?
  • Use a deposit of payments made towards your virtual booth at the 2020 DSC Direct virtual program. Exhibitors who select this option will receive top booth selection priority as it relates to the 2021 IFDA Distribution Solutions Conference. (Before Opening Booth Selection for all non-exhibitors)
  • Transfer your full deposit payments to the 2021 IFDA Distributions Solutions Conference. Exhibitors who choose this option will receive the same amount of exhibit space and sponsorship regardless if booth costs increase.
  • Request a refund of your full payment. Refunds will be processed to your original form of payment (please allow 60 days for receipt). Please note that 2021 IFDA DSC rates may increase, and you will be invoiced to pay the higher rate when you submit your application for exhibit space or sponsorship next year.
What happens to future DSC's?
We fully expect to hold the DSC in person again. We are scheduled for Ft. Worth, TX, September 12-14, 2021.
