IAFP 2021 offers in-person and virtual attendance options
This year’s International Association for Food Protection Annual Meeting will be held both at the Phoenix (AZ) Convention Center and virtually for those unable to travel, July 18-21.
Attendees will join thousands of food safety professionals from around the world for three days of sharing, learning and networking. Attendees range from academics to industry professionals to government regulators.
Each year, the IAFP hosts an Annual Meeting, providing attendees with information on current and emerging food safety issues, the latest science, innovative solutions to new and recurring problems, and the opportunity to network with thousands of food safety professionals from around the globe. Held in various locations throughout North America, this meeting has grown over the years to become the leading food safety conference worldwide.
In a usual year, the IAFP Annual Meeting is attended by about 4,000 of the top industry, academic and governmental food safety professionals from six continents. The event is known for the quantity, quality, and diversity of each year’s program; the quality and relevance of exhibits sharing the latest in available technologies; leading experts speaking on a variety of timely topics; and special recognition of outstanding professionals and students for their contributions in the food safety field.
The IAFP officials say the non-profit organization is committed to producing a high-quality program, including presentations, general sessions, symposia, poster exhibits and award recognitions.
