Money was allocated as requested by each exhibitor who provided instructions by the September 24, 2021 deadline. If no instructions were provided by the September 24 deadline, all money was automatically rolled towards the 2022 Fresh Summit. If you have any questions regarding how your money was allocated, please contact Colleen McDonnell at [email protected] or +1 (302) 607-2159.
Maintain priority points – all payments received will count in the priority point calculation used for 2022 booth selection order (based on existing point system); a refund would likely reduce total priority points and could move your company lower in the booth selection order for next year.
Monies donated will help provide PMA with the resources to continue to serve, advocate and provide year-long value for the industry.
- Orders with GES will automatically be refunded or they will reach out to you if they need more information. If you shipped materials to the GES warehouse, they will contact you to make arrangements.
- Reach out to official Fresh Summit vendors or others you have made arrangements with directly to notify them of the cancellation and request a refund/credit.
- Reach out to your event insurance provider to discuss your coverage for other expenses.
Priority points earned with PMA and/or United Fresh this past year will be used to determine the order in which booths are selected for the 2022 expo; specific information will be shared with the booth application. All companies must submit a booth application by the published deadline in order to exhibit and select their booth location in priority point order. Receiving a refund could impact your priority points and negatively impact your selection time for 2022.
We will be sending out the booth application for 2022 in December.
All exhibitors must complete a 2022 booth application (even if they are using money transferred from 2021) to ensure we have accurate information on booth size needs, up-to-date contact information, etc. Those who transferred money will be invoiced only for the remaining balance due for the 2022 event.
Booth selection appointments will take place in priority point order in the first quarter of 2022.
Pricing for 2022 will be set and communicated by December.
