A Message to Our Industry Colleagues

2020 has certainly presented challenges that have impacted us all. As we continue to navigate towards the new normal, NFRA is committed to pursuing all avenues that will allow us to convene and collaborate at the annual Convention in National Harbor. We are continuing to plan for an on-site event in October and are working closely with the Gaylord National Harbor to provide a safe environment for our attendees. We realize that components of the Convention may need to be transformed, but are optimistic that we will be able to successfully accomplish the goal of connecting business partners over the course of the event.

NFRA will continue to monitor all official guidelines and policies to keep our attendees and partners informed in a timely manner. We appreciate your support and participation and look forward to connecting in October!

The Customer Business Meeting Approach
The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Convention isn’t your typical industry meeting. While there are breakfast speakers, luncheons and a networking reception, most of your time spent at the NFRA Convention will be in one-on-one business meetings with the companies of your choice. The real value of this Convention is that all the major companies in the industry – retailers, manufacturers, sales agents, logistics providers, suppliers – are all in one place. So it’s possible to hold dozens of meetings in just a few days.

How Customer Business Appointments Work
NFRA provides Retailer members with complimentary meeting rooms so they may hold appointments throughout the Convention. These meetings can take any direction the participants choose, from the review of an established account to the introduction of a new product. See the Business Meetings page for full details.
