IFMA's Gold & Silver Plate Awards pay tribute to the most outstanding and innovative talents in up to ten segments of foodservice operations. The winner of the Gold Plate award is announced at the annual Gold & Silver Plate Celebration during NRA Show Week.
The Distributor Awards, presented at Presidents Conference, acknowledge distributor leadership and overall excellence within the foodservice industry. The awards demonstrate IFMA's appreciation for distributors' integral role in the foodservice channel.
COEX Innovation Awards recognize regional and national chain companies that are shaping the industry through innovation in culinary, operations, marketing and service. The winners are honored at IFMA's Chain Operators Exchange (COEX).
The Operator Collaboration Model is the industry's go-to-market model to collaborate more effectively with your chain operator partners. The training provides a framework to classify and segment operator-supplier relationships, better allocating resources across organizations.
Through this interactive one-day group training session, participants learn the OCM foundation and the new Joint Business Planning process, allowing immediate application of both in day-to-day interactions with key channel partners.
Learn how this new thinking and set of tools can change how to approach and manage key account business, and for operators, how to better manage supplier partners.
The IFMA Chain Operators EXchange (COEX) enables chain operators to take advantage of business building insights and create personal connections with leading manufacturers. With dozens of high-profile operators on the planning committee, the program truly is created "by operators, for operators."
This Annual IFMA Gold & Silver Plate Awards event during NRA Week enables manufacturers to honor the nation's top operator talent. Annually, IFMA grants Silver Plate Awards in nine operator categories and honors one winner with the prestigious Gold Plate Award on the night of the celebration. This event affords the perfect opportunity to entertain operator customers.
