business news in context, analysis with attitude

FMI-The Food Industry Association said yesterday that it is rescheduling its annual Midwinter Executive Conference, originally slated to take place later this month but postponed because of concerns about the pandemic.

The new dates are at March 28-31, 2022.  The conference will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando.

FMI also announced that the conference, which is dominated by one-to-one top-to-top meetings, will be keynoted by Dana M. Peterson, the Chief Economist & Center Leader of Economy, Strategy & Finance at The Conference Board.

KC's View:

FMI Midwinter had the bad luck of being scheduled for January at a time when the Omicron variant simply made a meeting inadvisable. March seems a lot safer bet ... I think we're all counting on the idea that in a few weeks, the world may look like a different place.
