Why should your company send you to Chicken Marketing Summit?

We understand. Budgets are tight. There’s a ton of work to be done at the office. It makes sense that your supervisor is a little hesitant to spend dollars to send you away from work for a few days, but we know Chicken Marketing Summit is worth the investment.

To help you obtain approval to attend on July 19-21, we’ve put together this justification toolkit.

Here are 4+ reasons to convince your supervisor that sending you to Chicken Marketing Summit is an investment they won’t regret:

1. Advice and connections are invaluable. Attendees have the chance to meet, network and get advice from hundreds of poultry professionals from companies like Amick Farms, Bojangles’, Chick-fil-A, Church’s Chicken, Claxton Poultry, Case Farms, DuPont Nutrition and Health, Georgia’s, Maple Leaf Farms, Peco Foods, Perdue Foods, PFSbrands, Pilgrim’s Pride, Restaurant Supply Chain Solutions, Sanderson Farms, Simmons Prepared Foods, Sodexo, Supply Management Services (SMS), Tyson, Wayne Farms, Wendy’s, Zaxby’s and more!

2. The chicken and protein industries are always changing. Consumers have more protein options for meals and snacks than ever before. This year Chicken Marketing Summit will focus on taking advantage of chicken’s versatility, taste, high-protein content and affordability to overcome competition from other meats and emerging non-meat alternatives.

The 2020 conference offers the latest data and insights to help you formulate a winning strategy. A series of educational sessions will focus on the theme, “Winning with Chicken.”
