October’s Fresh Summit 2021 called off by Produce Marketing Association

Produce Marketing Association has announced it will be unable to put on Fresh Summit 2021 scheduled for Oct. 28-30 in New Orleans, Louisiana, due to the impacts of both Hurricane Ida and Tropical Storm Nicholas.

Cathy Burns, Produce Marketing Association (PMA) CEO, details the difficult decision in a video message.

“I had hoped to bring everyone together in New Orleans in October,” Burns said in the video message. “Given the impact of Hurricane Ida and now tropical storm Nicholas, we have decided we are unable to put on Fresh Summit 2021.”

“An event this size requires ground resources weeks before the event and we are simply not confident that the infrastructure necessary for an event this size will be in place. “Missing the opportunity to get together in person is incredibly disappointing, especially under such unforeseen circumstances.”

PMA is working with all exhibitors, sponsors, and registered guests on next steps. Please refer to your email for details, and reach out to us if you haven’t been contacted at [email protected].
