The IAFP Executive Board has agreed to move IAFP 2020 to October 25-28, 2020. The are currently working with speakers, exhibitors, attendees and all interested parties to finalize arrangements for the Annual Meeting. IAFP remains committed to planning responsibly for IAFP 2020.

IAFP will continue to monitor health guidance issued by the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) along with those issued by the State of Ohio, Cuyahoga County (Ohio) and the City of Cleveland. Many changes will be made to IAFP 2020 after taking into account these guidance documents.

This will mark the first major food safety conference to take place after so many events were cancelled due to COVID-19.

IAFP recognizes that attendance will be reduced in comparison to our normal attendance, but this will help allow for proper “social distancing” to take place. IAFP 2020 will showcase the best practices as we enter a new way of holding meetings. Attendees of IAFP 2020 will be expected to follow all recommended precautions to prevent transmission of infectious diseases.
