The American Dairy Products Institute in conjunction with the American Butter Institute is excited to announce that the 2020 Joint Annual Conference scheduled for July is now going virtual! 

This annual gathering of over 1,000+ dairy-centric stakeholders from all facets of the dairy industry, domestic and internationally, which has become known as “Where The Dairy Industry Does Business®” will now be brought to you virtually.

Don’t worry about travel restrictions, face mask needs, hand sanitizers and groups over 20. ADPI and ABI will be delivering this premier conference and excellent content right to you regardless of your physical location.  

This new virtual format is scheduled to span over the course of 5 days from July 27 - 31. This format will feature “live sessions and panels” that will be designed for only 2 to 2.5 hours per day, allowing for all attendees to continue with their regular work schedules as we all manage the ongoing impacts relative to COVID-19. If you have a conflict that arises on one of the days, no worries as all the sessions will be recorded for payback at your leisure as you’ll have a new registration link (unique to you).

In true, ADPI/ABI Annual Conference fashion, this event will still be “Where The Dairy Industry Does Business®”, as the 2020 format will also feature a “Virtual Exhibit Hall.” We know the best interactions are ones where exhibitors and attendees can see each other, shake hands (oh, how we miss this!), smile, laugh and be human. This virtual exhibit hall will allow exhibitors and attendees to instantly jump into live video/audio conversations straight from the virtual event portal - with no additional technology! 

The ADPI/ABI Virtual Joint Annual Conference will still be a L3®  - Listen, Learn and Liaise social event, as the platform will also allow attendees to see and chat publicly at any time. Attendees will also have the opportunity to branch off into private conversations inside the portal at during the event. These portals will enable attendees “24/5” access throughout the week.

The Silver lining in the “Virtual Cloud” here is that attendees will receive many of the benefits of the ADPI/ABI Joint Annual Conference at a significantly reduced cost when compared to the normal registration fees.
