2016 Annual Meat Conference Brochure

Never before has the Annual Meat Conference offered such a complete education and networking experience! In addition, there are close to five hours of exhibits showcasing the latest in new meat and poultry products and the products and services retailers need to increase their bottom line. Comprehensive education sessions include a variety of ways to explore the latest developments in meat retailing today. Gain tools, insights, inspiration and new ideas to differentiate your unique products and services, fortify your marketing ROI, increase sales and build customer loyalty.

The Annual Meat Conference aims to satisfy your appetite for learning and professional growth and opens the door to fresh ideas and new perspectives. Join your colleagues in Nashville and hear the latest about consumer trends that can be readily applied to your business.

For 2016 the Annual Meat Conference has once again combined the traditional Innovative Technology Solutions exhibit with the Product Tasting Reception to create one larger and longer exhibit opportunity.  We anticipate more than 75 exhibiting companies to showcase their meat and poultry products as well as state of the art technology to more than 200 retailer representatives.  This is only event dedicated to the retail segment of the meat and poultry industry.

Join us at the Gaylord Opryland, the epitome of modern Southern hospitality, where comfort and luxury combine to offer an unparalleled environment. Gaylord Opryland is a short 10-minute drive from Nashville's International Airport. Shuttle service and car service are available from the airport to the hotel.

Sponsors' financial and in-kind support are critical to the high quality of the educational program, the fun and excitement of the social events and the overall value of the conference program.
