Date Change: IARW-WFLO Convention

IARW-WFLO Convention logoIn light of the evolving situation surrounding Coronavirus (COVID-19), and with the support of the IARW-WFLO Executive Committees, GCCA has made the difficult decision to reschedule the 129th IARW-WFLO Convention that was planned for May 5-8, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs, Florida. As of today, the plan is to host the IARW-WFLO Convention from August 30 to September 2, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa.

The expansion of the virus will continue to impact our daily lives in the coming weeks, most likely making it impossible for attendees to get to and/or from the event. IARW-WFLO Members are critical to the global food supply chain and on the front lines of feeding the world. No doubt you will be needed to lead your organizations through these unprecedented times.

We determined that this event was an important touch-point for members during the year and will be especially needed this year. We realize the new dates may not work for everyone but with everything going on in the industry we believe coming together as a community will be of greater value than ever before. Over the coming week we will continue to communicate with attendees, speakers, sponsors, and exhibitors as we work though the rescheduling.

We understand this may not be the desired outcome for some, and we too are disappointed to have to reschedule an event which members look forward to each year. However, your health and safety are our highest priorities.
