Tuesday, December 7, 2010

Washington, D.C. -- The Annual Meat Conference, to be held February 20-22, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas, will again play host to two ever-popular events: the Product Tasting Reception and Innovative Technology Solutions Exhibit.

This year’s re-invented and expanded Innovative Technology Solutions Exhibit, slated for Monday, February 21, is larger than ever before, with an additional focus on retailer needs. For the first time, exhibitors will be able to showcase their products and services to key retailers with exhibit time during breakfast and lunch in addition to the one hour dedicated networking session from 11 a.m. until noon.

The Product Tasting Reception is also slated for Monday, February 21, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m., and will showcase some of the newest meat and poultry products in the retail market. Exhibit space for this event is filling up fast as companies sign up to serve their products to the retail community in this feast of food tastes.

Co-sponsored by the American Meat Institute Foundation (AMIF) and the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), the conference each year attracts 800 members of the retail food and meat industries. It is considered the leading educational event focusing on meat and poultry marketing innovations, merchandising issues and consumer purchasing trends.

Associate sponsors include the American Lamb Board, Beef Checkoff, National Chicken Council, National Pork Board and National Turkey Federation.
