FMItech at Midwinter promotes conversations, explorations and private exchanges to enhance your technology strategy.

We bring together FMI Midwinter attendees focused on technology, e-commerce and automation strategies to create actionable next steps.

Tech Exchanges

Explore the best technology strategies with retailers & wholesalers. Technology partners host virtual business suites through the Strategic Executive Exchange (SEE) program, for 45-minute appointments.

Tech Talks

Virtual round table panels exploring technology-related topics with bite-size presentations. Each session will host four to five technology companies addressing core central themes including digital/e-commerce, automation, customer engagement, and optimization from unique vantage points.

All registered FMI Midwinter attendees are welcome to watch Tech Talks.

Tech Sessions

Our tech-focused education sessions will keep you in the know, shed light on upcoming trends and prepare you for the future in tech, as it pertains to the food industry.
