What is Food Shippers of America doing to try and increase the number of shippers and receivers attending the conference?
We are aggressively taking steps to make other food companies aware of the benefits of attending the annual conference. It is a unique one stop shopping venue for every aspect of the supply chain.
We are reaching out to all offering an incentive to spread the word. If a shipper or receiver company attends the conference for the first time or returns after an absence of 5 years and they note on registration individual that encouraged them to attend then named individual will be presented with a $100 gift card at the conference as a thank you for being a advocate of Food Shippers of America.
Note: Verification of new or return companies qualifying will be completed by Food Shippers of America Executive Director.
