Get Involved. Get Noticed!

The annual FMI Midwinter Executive Conference is an invitation-only gathering of the food retail industry's leading stores, wholesalers, independent operators, suppliers and manufacturers.

Sponsorship puts your name in front of the highest-quality audience in food retail and wholesale. Exposure is crucial to success, which is why we're working with the National Doral Miami in 2018 to ensure we're meeting (and exceeding) all your signage, sponsorship and brand building needs. Investing in the Midwinter Executive Conference gives your business the exposure it needs to get noticed by key food retail professionals around the country so you can really move the needle.
