Last Chance to Register for Annual Meat Conference

Monday, February 12, 2007

Washington, D.C., – The 2007 Annual Meat Conference begins next week, but you still have time to register for the best opportunity to understand how consumer’ meat mindsets and purchasing habits work.

Attendees of the Conference, Feb. 18-20, 2007, at the Caribe Royale All-Suites Resort and Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., will have exclusive access to new research highlighting consumer shopping and purchasing habits. Other sessions include hands-on demonstrations that will provide the latest strategies to drive consumers straight to the meat case, sessions on the growth of natural and organic products and many more topics not found anywhere else.

Back for another year is the Product Tasting Reception, one of the most popular events of the Conference. The reception provides an opportunity, not just to see, but to taste some of the newest and most innovative meat and poultry products in the marketplace.

The Conference also offers a special first-timer registration rate of $300 for executives from retailer/wholesaler member companies who have not attended the conference during the previous three years – a savings of more than 50 percent over the regular registration rate. For additional information, call (202) 220-0708.

Co-sponsored by AMI and FMI, the conference has become the industry’s leading meat marketing and operations educational program, designed to bring together every segment of the retail meat and poultry supply chain. Associate sponsors include the American Lamb Board, Canadian Meat Council, National Chicken Council, National Pork Board, The Beef Checkoff and National Turkey Federation.

Online registration is now closed, but can be completed at the conference. Registration is $695 per person ($645 for three or more registrations from the same company). Five or more retailers/wholesalers, representing member companies attending together receive the special group discount of $515 per person.
