Don’t miss out on the New York State Grocery Industry Event of the Year!


Thursday, November 5, 2020

The Summit & Expo is a one-day live event combines many of FIA current and past events all wrapped in one!

  • Educational presentations throughout the day are similar to the new type of Trade Reception Events. All attendees have access to click into presentations and watch them live, submit questions to the moderator and access all presentations on-demand for 30 days.
  • Appointments are made by attendees through the virtual exhibitor booths. This feature is similar to the former event Trade Summit bringing retailers and suppliers together. Titles are included with attendees so finding the right contact is much easier.
  • Exhibitor Booths are virtual experience where companies can display new products, upload images, handouts and even videos. This virtual experience is similar to the day event planned prior to the Gala.
  •  Networking opportunities begin one week prior to the event when the event site opens to view attendees and request meetings, run throughout the day of the event and continue for 30 days after the event with access to the online directory.

The Summit & Expo event website acts as a five-week networking experience and digital directory for the New York State grocery industry.
