Energy & Store Development Conference Participants, Co-Chairs, Committee and Sponsors,

Thank you for your patience over the past few months while we explored our options for the 2020 Energy & Store Development Conference.

We had hoped to continue with the event as planned; however, after consulting with the planning committee and monitoring unfolding events, we regret that we are canceling the 2020 event in Baltimore.   

To make sure you can still get the information you need on the latest developments in the field, we are planning a series of short, interactive, online sessions this fall featuring key topics important to the Energy & Store Development community. We also plan to announce the 2021 Energy & Store Development Conference soon.  

If you have already paid a registration fee, you will receive a full refund. The same option applies to all sponsorship monies paid. On your behalf, we will ask the Baltimore Hilton Inner Harbor to cancel all room reservations under the E+SD block.   

We know you are all involved in a critical mission to help ensure your stores are safe and individuals and families can get the groceries needed during this time and your attention and efforts are currently focused on serving your stores and communities.  

Thanks again for all you do and stay safe and well and we look forward to talking with you all during our online programs this fall and to meeting with you in person again in 2021.  

Your FMI Family.
