Urner Barry’s Executive Conference 2020 Postponed, New October Dates Announced

Industry News, Member News,

Due to the escalation of the situation concerning the COVID-19 pandemic, and the uncertainty surrounding the latest statement from MGM on the temporary closing of their Las Vegas resorts, including the Bellagio, Urner Barry has made the decision to postpone the annual Executive Conference to October 4-6, 2020. The event was originally scheduled for April 26-28, 2020. The venue will remain the Bellagio in Las Vegas for the new dates in October.

The wellbeing of our community and colleagues remains our number one priority so, whilst this decision has not been taken lightly, we feel that moving the event further back in the year will provide the best possible opportunity for you to meet your business needs.

“Urner Barry’s decision to postpone the conference is in the best interest of all of us involved in food production, marketing, and distribution. I am looking forward to seeing everyone in October,” said Carl Abbott of Land O’ Frost, Inc., 2020 panelist and long-time attendee of the conference.

Any existing bookings are automatically transferred to the new event dates and attendees will have received an email notifying them. If you have already booked a room directly with the Bellagio please contact the hotel directly to amend your booking. If you are an existing attendee and have any questions or concerns, please contact Lynn Dekovitch by e-mail lynnd@urnerbarry.com or phone 732-240-5330.
