NFRA Convention

What is the NFRA Convention?
The NFRA Convention, held annually in October at various locations (The 2018 NFRA Convenion is October 20-23 at the Marriott Marquis in San Diego, CA), is the leading event of the frozen and refrigerated foods industry. The Convention brings together the top companies form all segments of the industry in one place and provides the time so attendees can conduct business with one another effectively and efficiently. This saves attendees the money and time spent away from the office that multiple visits throughout the year would take.

NFRA provides Retailer attendees with complimentary meeting rooms to hold appointments throughout the Convention. Many Manufacturers have meeting rooms or suites where they hold appointments as well, which can take any direction the participants choose; this can vary from the review of a new or established account to the introduction of a new product or service.

What events take place during the NFRA Convention?
The NFRA Convention also offers industry-exclusive events like the Taste of Excellence, where attendees get to sample the latest and best frozen and refrigerated products. Breakfast sessions kick off the mornings and offer outstanding presentations from notable speakers. Other events include a General Session, Industry Luncheon, Annual Membership Luncheon and the Networking Reception, where the Golden Penguin Award winners are recognized. See the Promotions page for more details on the Golden Penguin Competition. Throughout the NFRA Convention, Cafe NFRA is open to all attendees, where they can hold informal meetings and network with colleagues, as well as sample new frozen and refrigerated products.
