FMI show retains officers, is renamed

The Food Marketing Institute, Arlington, Va., says that its current board officers will remain in their current roles for another year to oversee implementation of the association’s new strategic plan. Leslie G. Sarasin, president and CEO of FMI, also says that next year’s FMI show will be renamed “FMI Connect, The Global Food Retail Experience.” The event is also returning to Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Scheduled for June 11-13, the event marks the return of an annual product exhibition combined with educational programming. “It will be about creating an event that is forward-thinking and reflects the future of our industry,” Sarasin says.

Current FMI chairman Harris Teeter, president and COO Fred Morganthall and other officers in place for an extra year will give the officers additional time to oversee implementation of the strategic plan they developed, FMI reports.
