Registration Information

FMI Future Leader eXperience Participants, Co-Chairs, Group Leaders, Committee and Sponsors,

Thank you for your patience while we explored our options for the 2020 Future Leaders eXperience. We know that this is an incredibly challenging time for all of our members in the food industry and we truly value your commitment to continuing to feed families in these uncertain times.  It has been heartening to see our industry rally to care for customers and communities at a time when they are needed the most.

We had hoped to continue with the event as planned; however, it is clear that we will not be able to do so given the CDC guidelines, travel restrictions and our desire to ensure your safety and wellbeing. Therefore, we regret that we are canceling the event initially slated for May 12-14, 2020 in Orlando.  Once we have a better picture of what the future holds for the coming months, we will gather our committee members and staff to explore options for rescheduling the event in the fall, providing a virtual or hybrid offering, or just waiting until 2021.

If you have already paid a registration fee, you may either opt to transfer the funds to the next event, or opt for a full refund. The same option applies to all sponsorship monies paid. Please reach out to FMI’s Senior Manager, Registration, Debbie Stewart at, and let her know how you would like us to proceed with your registration fees paid. On your behalf, we will ask the Grand Hyatt Regency Orlando to cancel all room reservations under the Future Leaders block.

Warm regards,
Your friends at FMI
