Dairy Forum 2021 is Virtual! Here’s Why
By now, you’ve heard that the dairy industry’s signature event is going virtual in January 2021. The International Dairy Foods Association put a lot of thought and planning into making Dairy Forum 2021 their most forward-thinking and most accessible event yet. Technology allows the IDFA to maintain networking spaces and opportunities for all attendees who come to Dairy Forum to meet and network. And in an effort to bring the experience to members at all levels, they’re offering a special Early Bird rate for all guests and a special First Timer rate for members.
With reduced fees, no need for travel, and more opportunities in a virtual environment to network and schedule your sessions and meetings, IDFA’s goal is to bring the Dairy Forum experience to a much broader audience of attendees in January.
But they made this decision for one clear reason: for the safety and peace of mind to all guests.
This past Dairy Forum was IDFA’s most successful event to date. They received so many positive comments and reviews from Board Members, IDFA members, and members of the dairy community. When their team walked out of Dairy Forum in Arizona, they couldn’t wait to get start on planning Dairy Forum 2021. Since then, coronavirus has put a wrinkle in their plans to gather in person, but it has not dampened their spirit. Dairy Forum is about unifying as one industry, sharing knowledge and information that prepares the IDFA to lead a growing and more prosperous industry, and coming together to connect with peers and colleagues. IDFA is certain that with virtual technology and event production, they will present a Dairy Forum in January 2021 that maintains their high standards and sets a new bar in virtual conferencing.
They want to deliver certainty and peace of mind to their members and guests. Safety is their number one priority. A virtual Dairy Forum is the best option to offer peace of mind for everyone.
With few in-person events, there is an abundance of high-quality speakers and presenters, meaning they’re able to offer a program that continues to be a step above any other similar event.
A virtual event for a reduced fee and special First Timer rate allows more guests to attend and participate. Their goal is to expand participation in a wide range of leaders within member companies and organizations. A virtual event without travel and other expenses allows them to broaden and expand their relationships with more current and future IDFA members wherever they are in the world.
Dairy Forum will offer each user a dashboard to organize your sessions and meetings, private meeting rooms where guests can have secure video chats or team meetings, a virtual meeting hall where it’s possible to network with peers and acquaintances, and the ability to hold multiple and simultaneous intimate gatherings—such as salon dinners.
Finally, they’ve gained valuable experience with virtual programming and they’re confident that they’re executing as well or better than anyone else in their space. IDFA is excited to broaden virtual programming with Dairy Forum 2021.
This has been a challenging year. We must come together take stock, retool, and recharge for the work that’s ahead. That’s why Dairy Forum 2021 will also be a place to recognize and celebrate the excellence of those among us who make us stronger, more resilient, and keep us safe–our #Essential workers. The IDFA is determined to dedicate time and space throughout the Dairy Forum program to make sure that the dairy community feels appreciated.
