IFDA Partners Executive Forum (PEF) is the industry’s premier event for top level foodservice executives to dialogue, and those conversations are more important than ever given the unprecedented change happening across our industry due to the pandemic. We fully understand that PEF is vital to ensure that 2021 is a success for each and every one of us.
As a result, we have decided to keep our original dates, January 25-27, and take the Partners Executive Forum virtual. By shifting to an all-digital platform for 2021, we promise to deliver a unique experience that helps our manufacturer partners and distributors colleagues connect and discuss 2021 goals, objectives, strategies and new opportunities.
While we tried as hard as possible to hold an in-person event, continued health concerns about the spread of COVID-19 made it increasingly unlikely we could host the event in early 2021. Technology has helped each of us connect during the pandemic – and that innovation will also help us reimagine the 2021 Partners Executive Forum and bring together the foodservice industry in a meaningful way.
“IFDA PARTNERS IS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MEETINGS WE PARTICIPATE IN ANNUALLY, ALIGNING OUR GOALS WITH VALUED PARTNERS FOR THE COMING YEAR.” - MIKE SWEET, PRESIDENT, BEN E. KEITH
