IFMA's Gold & Silver Plate Awards pay tribute to the most outstanding and innovative talents in up to nine 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 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.
The annual IFMA Marketing & Sales Leaders Forum focuses on marketing and sales collaboration, providing these professionals the means to apply actionable insights and best practices to work together to improve both strategic planning and go-to-market execution.
The program serves to unravel the complexities of the foodservice landscape, delivering powerful insights into the consumer, operator and distributor communities, as well as communicating how to best utilize the available tools for improved collaboration and tactical go-to-market execution.
