How do we define commercial buyers?
If you are a decision maker in the procurement and sourcing of food, beverage or bio products for your company - you likely qualify. All food channels are welcome - Institutional Food Service, Grocery, Restaurant, Retail, Catalog, On-Line and Manufacturing.

Buyers may register, at no charge and need only provide appropriate verification at the door on the day of the event.

For those anxious to get started looking for exactly the right product, product form, species or certification? Register at GFC-Connect.Com to source exactly what you want, how and when you want it.

Seeking a fresh 4 ounce, skinless, pin bone out, sockeye fillet that is certified sustainable delivered to your place of business only during the holidays? How about an Alaskan made ice cream that incorporates your favorite flavor of Alaskan brew?

How about coffee for your your restaurant or hotel? Fresh cheese? Snack sticks from salmon or Alaska certified organic beef? Want to learn what is available that is USDA certified organic? Who is local? A minority owned business? Try GFC-Connect, where you can not only search, but place your specific request - confidentially.

Dinner Honoring Alaska's Own - Harvesters and Producers
How could we not do it? One of the most memorable parts of the entire event!

An awards dinner will be part of the overall industry event, scheduled for Wednesday, June 8th. This event will is the capstone of Global Food Alaska where leaders in food harvesting, production and marketing will be recognized and honored.

If you missed the last two events, please take a look back. (Click on the images to view in a full slide show format.) Global Food Alaska 2007 Global Food Alaska 2009 We were honored with leaders of business, policy makers and even a few celebrities.

Participants contributed their Alaskan harvested food and beverage for one of the best meals EVER! We plan to do it all over again in 2011!

What Makes GFA 2011 Unique?
Decision makers.

Global Food Alaska 2011 is different in many ways, but most notably it is designed for decision makers and actively solicits executives, owners/operators of companies and senior decision makers at each link in the supply chain.

Additionally, those decision makers are asked to dedicate the entire two days to this event to have meaningful meetings that impact positive change for increasingly competitive business.

Does this mean that it is exclusive to large business? Absolutely not. It is designed for operating companies that buy, sell or support the food, beverage or bio products industry of all sizes - local, national and international.

We make every effort to attract exactly the right people and if you're receiving this bulletin, then you are definitely part of that solution.

Should You Be Sponsoring?
We rely on our sponsors to create the quality of event that best supports sustainable business growth for participants.

Those signing up now also will gain the maximum visibility in all Global Food Alaska 2011 marketing materials (that's 12 full months).

Additionally, sponsors will have the option of one designee to be a member of our quarterly organizational conference calls making sure your business objectives will be met. To learn more about sponsorship levels please follow the link below or call 907.563.0154.
