IFMA’s 66th Gold & Silver Plate Awards Celebration Moves to November

To properly celebrate and honor our 2020 Silver Plate Award recipients, IFMA’s 66th Gold & Silver Plate Awards Celebration is moving from Chicago, May 16 to November 2, in Scottsdale, Arizona. The awards celebration will take place during IFMA’s Presidents Conference, including the announcement of the overall Gold Plate Award winner for industry excellence.

Given the growing health concerns and evolving situation surrounding the COVID-19 virus, IFMA made the decision to move the 2020 Gold and Silver Plate Awards to November out of concern for our award recipients, members, and community.

Additional details on the November Gold & Silver Plate Awards Celebration will be provided in future IFMA communications. If you have already purchased or secured a table or ticket, IFMA will be in contact with more information.

In the coming months, we will expand our tradition of honoring each of our 2020 Silver Plate Award recipients on our website and in the media. We thank you in advance for your continued support of our industry’s most iconic foodservice awards and celebration of excellence.


We look forward to seeing you in November!
