WMU Food Marketing Conference Postponed Due To Coronavirus

WMU Food Marketing Conference postponed

Western Michigan University has been closely monitoring and evaluating the rapidly evolving global Covid-19 virus outbreak to ensure it is taking the necessary measures to protect the health and well-being of the WMU Food Marketing Conference attendees. After careful consideration of many factors, WMU has decided to postpone the 2020 WMU Food Marketing Conference, scheduled for March 31-April 1, in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

WMU officials say they are committed to putting the health and safety of conference attendees and students first and are sensitive to current corporate travel restrictions. WMU is evaluating options for rescheduling the conference. It also will be contacting each conference sponsor individually in the coming days.

The conference is the single-largest revenue stream for the WMU food and consumer package goods marketing program, allowing WMU to provide scholarships and experiential learning opportunities for our students.

For more information, call the conference hotline at 269-387-2132 or email Conference Coordinator Lisa Youtzy at [email protected] with any questions.
