2020 ADPI/ABI Virtual Joint Annual Conference
2020 ADPI/ABI Virtual Joint Annual Conference
Mon, July 27, 2020 @ 10:00 AM — Fri, July 31, 2020 @ 05:00 PM (CDT)

Official 2020 ADPI/ABI Virtual Joint Annual Conference Booklet

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! 

For the first time in 22 years, ADPI and conference partner ABI will be hosting our traditional Chicago-based Joint Annual Conference via an unique and exciting virtual format.

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 directly to you! So no need to worry about travel restrictions, face mask needs, hand sanitizers and groups over 20! 

This new virtual format will span over the course of 5 days from July 27 - 31 and feature “live sessions and panels” that are 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.

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” and “Sponsor Showcase.” We know the best interactions are ones where exhibitors, sponsors and attendees can see each other, shake hands (oh, how we miss this!), smile, laugh and be human. These interactive features will allow exhibitors, sponsors 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, 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 during the event, which will be accessable “24/5” throughout the week.

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

All registered attendees will receive login creditionals that are unique to you and only you and will not be shareable. So don't delay register today!
