The Food Marketing Institute is providing registration discounts for wholesalers and independent operators attending Future Connect, FMI’s upcoming leadership development event for the retail food industry.
The Wholesaler Group Advantage Program (GAP) is offered to wholesalers who bring any combination of 10 or more of their associates, and associates from their independent retailers who have 10 or fewer stores. This program provides the lowest possible registration fee with a savings of up to $560 per registration. Groups registering 10 or more people will receive an additional registration free of charge.
“Future Connect is designed to help retailers, wholesalers and suppliers attract, retain and develop talent for the future through collaborative learning sessions,” said Leslie Sarasin, FMI president and CEO. “FMI is also keenly aware of the importance of addressing the needs of our wholesaler and independent operator members, and we want to encourage their participation because it is crucial for the industry as a whole to build the next generation of leaders.”
Future Connect offers interactive, problem-based sessions in the three key areas of operations management, strategic management and sales, marketing and merchandising.
