Your summer plans are likely looking a bit different than you had envisioned. For the past nine weeks you have been worrying about the safety of your employees and the resilience of your supply chains, ramped up your online ordering capabilities, and handled a million other concerns you might not have seen coming. The strategic plans you set in January have been upended, but—and take a deep breath—there is still time to make some midsummer plans that can strengthen your business partnerships and lay out an adjusted strategic path forward.

This is FMI’s goal in hosting a new virtual event, FMI’s Midsummer Strategic Executive Exchange. Midsummer provides a unique strategic opportunity for trading partner collaboration to hit the reset button and together identify, prioritize and address the industry’s most pressing business issues. Through private, virtual business to business meetings FMI will provide a framework to accelerate business recovery and streamline ways of working better together up and down the supply chain.

Exclusive to C-suite executives, FMI Midsummer opportunities begin Tuesday, July 7, 2020. The virtual program will include daily Insight & Learning sessions followed by flexible meeting times for Strategic Executive Exchanges.

We’re all navigating a new normal and revamping our path forward. Now is when strong business partnerships are most needed to help tackle whatever lies ahead. We hope you’ll join the food industry in this unprecedented virtual event so we can all navigate the path before us together.

Submit your commitment form by May 22, 2020, and register your team members by June 2 to secure your participation in the program.
