Overview

What strategies for recruiting and retaining quality employees are successful in the current labor market? How are foodservice distributors addressing cybersecurity issues? Don’t miss the best opportunity of the year to discuss priority issues like these and other questions that are top of mind for you with peers from other foodservice distribution companies. 

IFDA’s Share Groups are where industry professionals discover new ideas and solutions via 100% peer-driven discussions. These biannual meetings provide a forum to share experiences and information on common challenges and opportunities with fellow foodservice distributors in four disciplines: Operations, IT, HR and Finance. The meetings also deliver unparalleled networking opportunities.

The program registration includes:
• Share group face-to-face meetings in Philadelphia, PA, June 2022
• Share group face-to-face meetings (consolidated) in Tampa, FL, September 2022
• Full registration for the IFDA Distribution Solutions Conference in Tampa, FL, in September 2022

Hear from your Peers!

"The IFDA Share Groups are an excellent opportunity to discuss best practices, pain points, and fresh ideas with your peers in a more intimate setting. The moderated discussion keeps the schedule on point, while also broadening the topics with knowledge from the industry. You can expect to walk away with a greater sense of how your KPIs line up industry wide, and new ideas to bring back and implement."

James Hoss
Vice President, Transportation, Operations, Cash-Wa Distributing

“I find the IFDA share groups to be my very favorite single IFDA benefit. The groups present a unique opportunity to share business issues in an intimate setting – a setting that goes beyond the in-person meetings, into everyday new relationships that you develop with your industry peers. Highly recommended!”
