IFMA Presidents Conference 2024
Scottsdale, AZ 
November 3-6, 2024 

About the Conference

For over 70 years, IFMA has brought together leaders from across the food-away-from-home ecosystem to tackle the macro and micro issues at hand. Today, as we invite more segments of the industry into IFMA membership, we can begin to see the benefits of having diverse perspectives and voices address the critical issues we face as a collective industry.

This November, join senior leaders from across the entire food-away-from-home industry for the IFMA Presidents Conference. Uncover exclusive never-seen-before executive content, attend powerful keynotes, immerse yourself in engaging and pertinent breakout sessions, and collaborate with customers and supply partners as we examine and define the evolution of an industry.

Who Should Attend

Foodservice management and senior leaders within the manufacturer, operator, supply chain, and allied partner communities.
