THE HOT CHICKEN CAPITAL WILL MAKE ROOM for more than just chicken this month when industry officials and retail buyers gather for the Annual Meat Conference (AMC).
Co-sponsored by the North American Meat
Institute Foundation (NAMIF) and the Food
Marketing Institute (FMI), the 2016 show,
which will be held Feb. 21-23 at the Gaylord
Opryland Resort & Convention Center in
Nashville, Tenn., will offer educational, networking and sampling opportunities for meat
and poultry professionals alike.
This year, AMC will once again combine
its Innovative Technology Solutions exhibit
with the Product Testing Reception to create
a larger and longer exhibit. The exhibit mar-
ries taste with technology and services that
retailers need to improve their bottom line,
say show organizers.
Educational sessions will cover a variety
of topics effecting the meat industry today,
including regulation, dynamics of the meat
case, e-commerce trends and growth, and consumer consumption trends, to name a few.
Show organizers expect more than 75 companies to exhibit their meat and poultry products as well as technology to more than 200
retailer attendees. Here is a sampling of what
some exhibitors will showcase at AMC.
