Celebrating Our

17th Annual Convention

July 18-21, 2021

The Carolinas Food Industry Council (CFIC) Convention

Reconnect with industry peers by joining the Carolinas Food Industry Council (CFIC) for a well-deserved celebration of the grocery industry. Come join us for a highly productive three days of outstanding seminars, new business opportunities, and (re)building connections with industry colleagues. The CFIC Convention is the only event that offers the chance to build professional and personal relationships in a relaxed, family-friendly setting.

The 17th Annual CFIC Convention is scheduled for July 18-21, 2021 at the Myrtle Beach Hilton Resort, and together we will we navigate the future of the grocery industry through business networking opportunities, presentations from top executives in the food trade, and educational sessions for grocers and suppliers in the Carolinas.

While this three-day event is not a trade show, it offers a variety of opportunities for vendors to showcase their products and for grocery retailers to sample products, learn about services, and build rapport with vendors and other food industry associates.

Who Should Attend?

  • Grocery Retailers (senior management, directors, category managers, etc.)
  • Sales Agents
