2020 Food & Drug Conference Postponed

The next gathering will be on
Dec. 13, 2021 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas

The challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic compel us to postpone the next Food & Drug Conference to Dec. 13, 2021. This decision is taken out of an abundance of caution due to the latest spike in infections around the country.

We are disappointed

Here’s to better times ahead!
