Make plans to attend the 2019 edition of Chicken Marketing Summit scheduled for July 21-23, 2019 at the Belmond Charleston Place in Charleston, South Carolina.

Presented by WATT Global Media and the National Chicken Council, the 44th annual Chicken Marketing Summit remains a member benefit for NCC processor and allied member companies, as well as members of the National Poultry and Food Distributors Association.

Highlights from the 2018 Chicken Marketing Summit:

The 2018 Chicken Marketing Summit provided attendees with the tools they need to react to disruption in the poultry marketplace. Teaching attendees to do more than just react, industry experts will offer insights for how to improve business and overcome the disruption.

A series of essential educational sessions focused on this year’s theme, “Survive and thrive in disruptive times.” Attendees learned to identify the current market disruptors in the poultry marketplace; prepare for how to react to the disruption; do more than just react, learn how to improve business and overcome the disruption; and how to become a disruptor.

The conference commenced with a keynote presentation from Lampkin Butts, president and chief operating officer from Sanderson Farms, who shared marketing insights. In addition to the keynote presentation, the 2018 event featured a lineup of 20 globally recognized speakers and panelists who shared research and information on a variety of topics. Sessions included marketing chicken in the digital age, branding and transparency, the future of food safety and chicken’s popularity on restaurant menus and more.

The educational sessions also featured three panel discussions on ecommerce, disruption and the always popular retail/foodservice poultry buyers’ panel. In addition, the agenda included a special presentation revealing the results of the Chicken Consumption Survey, which showed chicken consumption remains strong.
