ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, US — The American Feed Industry Association’s (AFIA) has rescheduled its 2021 Purchasing & Ingredient Suppliers Conference (PISC) for Aug. 17-19, 2021, in Orlando, Florida, US.

The AFIA decided to postpone the event due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic and member safety.

“We have decided to postpone PISC so that more of our members will be able to safely participate in person,” said Veronica Rovelli, senior director of meetings and events for the AFIA. “Please note that we made this decision in close consultation with our members and partners, who felt it would allow us to provide the quality experience they have come to expect while protecting the health and safety of our attendees and staff. Whether you will be joining us in sunny Orlando or participating virtually from your hometown, PISC is and will continue to be where business gets done.”

Registration will open later this year and include two options, in-person or hybrid. If circumstances do not allow for travel, attendees can participate virtually in the educational and networking components of this event. It will be hosted in Orlando, Florida, US, at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, which has earned a GBAC star facility accreditation and continues to have the commitment to care that the AFIA has experienced in the past.
