WELCOME to the 2023 Northern California Institute of Food Technologists Suppliers’ Night events. 
Life continues to get more and more normal after the disruption of the COVID-19 pandemic. NCIFT is no different as we continue to plan and provide in-person events for our members. Your Suppliers’ Night committee has been busy putting together the Suppliers’ Night events and we look forward to you being able to join us for all the events. These events are designed to help you, as members, network with your peers and gain insights into the food industry we all enjoy working in. You will find professional education accepted for CFS certification continuing education credit hours. You will find an opportunity to have client meetings. You will find the opportunity to identify and select suppliers of your next new ingredient or service. And you’ll have plenty of time to network with your peers. We continue to provide the more open arrangements we used for last years’ event and welcome you to a COVID safe event. Let’s look at some of the details.

Monday April 24th: Our 31st annual Golf Classic. Use this opportunity to have a 6 hour meeting with that potential client or customer – learn what they are really looking for. Or thank your best client or buyers, learning more about their needs. We know that being outdoors is a great way to avoid COVID so join us outdoors to golf and network with clients and friends. This year at Callippe Preserve Golf Course in Pleasanton, conveniently off of I-680, will be a great chance to enjoy golfing and network. Consider helping to make the event even better for everyone by becoming a Premier or Champion sponsor for the event – you won’t regret it.

Tuesday April 25th: Today is a big day with the Educational Symposium, Student Poster Competition and Suppliers’ Expo. Join us for an afternoon and evening of education and expo time. The symposium team is building an interesting and educational event, but continues to confirm speakers so more on that as it develops. I’m confident that you’ll find it great. The EXPO layout will continue to be expanded like last year, providing more physical separation for guests to experience each exhibitor. With almost 250 exhibitors, you’ll want to wear your comfortable shoes! In addition, this will be our second year providing a poster competition for our students. Be sure to look over the posters and ask the presenters some questions.You may find your next great employee at this event.
