Technomic Gearing Up for Major Meeting with Foodservice Suppliers

May 28, 2013, 11:15 ET from Technomic

CHICAGO, May 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Twice a year, Technomic plays host to over 100 major suppliers to the foodservice industry at its Foodservice Planning Program (FSPP) conferences. While the manufacturers attending these events benefit from important networking opportunities, the primary focus of the meeting is on gaining insights from three major research studies -- high-interest topics selected by clients.

At the upcoming June 17-18 conference, held in Chicago, these studies include:

Reaching the Operator -- Which tactics and activities are truly impactful and add value to the manufacturer/operator relationship?

Food on the Go -- How can manufacturers leverage opportunities from operators' growing interest in offering pre-packaged meals?

Best Practices in Supply Chain and Redistribution -- Which strategies and tactics will help manufacturers better align with redistributors? Or is it preferable to directly engage in redistribution?

The complete conference agenda also includes guest speakers, an update on the industry and highlights from the new Top 500 Chain Restaurant Report, and a special presentation on Restaurant Depot developments.

Next January, three other major studies will be presented in Newport Beach, California, rounding out the current Planning Program year. These topics include Growth Strategies for a Mature Marketplace, Foodservice Managements Firms: Top Players and Winners, and Reaching the Distributor Sales Rep.

It's not too late for members of the FSPP to submit their final registration details for June 17-18. To learn more about Technomic's Foodservice Planning Program, please contact Chris Urban at 312-506-3929 or
