Why Should I Attend?

The real value of the CFIC Convention is that all the major regional grocery industry companies – retailers, manufacturers, sales agents, logistics providers, suppliers – come together in one place. The CFIC Convention provides a relaxed setting where families can come, and business can still get done! That saves everyone time spent away from the office throughout the year and money in additional travel costs. Sponsors and retailers can schedule meetings to review an established account or introduce a new product, and impromptu pool-side meetings can lead to beneficial, long-term partnerships you never would have expected!
