Great reviews of its United Fresh LIVE! has prompted United Fresh to extend its virtual platform to an ongoing status, the association said earlier this week.
United Fresh LIVE! 365 is a “year-round platform to deliver webinars, conference programming, and networking opportunities for the global produce industry,” United Fresh posted on its website at https://www.unitedfresh.org/united-fresh-live-365/.
It noted, “Due to the pioneering success of June’s United Fresh LIVE!, the virtual platform will serve as a year-round online marketplace where buyers seeking to source new products and solutions will discover hundreds of vendors across the platform.”
The site cited Michael Muzyk, President of Baldor Specialty Foods Inc., and Chair of United Fresh Board of Directions: “United Fresh took a leap of faith by making the pivot to a virtual event this June and it paid off. We all benefited from gathering our global community online. It’s only natural that we continue to rebuild our industry through this platform.”
Here’s a partial schedule of events, with more available at the site:
July & August 2020
The platform will remain free to all users during the Summer Session through September 1, providing access to all current exhibitors in the expo and on-demand recordings of all general sessions and workshops from June 15-19. The association also will begin delivering new live webinars and networking events on LIVE! 365.
