We feel that it is our responsibility to help flatten the coronavirus curve and keep you safe. In order to do this, we have decided to cancel the upcoming IMFA Annual Conference in Scottsdale, AZ in April 2021. While we are still as dedicated as ever to connecting you with others in the industry and keeping you updated on the latest advancements in MF, your safety comes first. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. We are looking forward to hosting you in the future, once the global health pandemic passes, and are hopeful that will be Spring 2022.

Save the Date: April 13 & 14, 2021

April 2021 Conference Goes Virtual

IMFA’s plan for April 2021 is to host our planned in-person conference virtually. Our 2021 lineup includes industry professionals such as Brian Toich of Osisoft Pi System | Rovisys, Bill Moore of MOORE & Associates, Kayla Fisher of Arizona State University, and much more. Our keynote speaker is George Pesanksy of Deliberate Improvement, and we have a special appearance by Oliver Campbell, Director Procurement and Packaging Engineering and Dell. As we still hammer out the details, this conference will be on a larger scale than our September one. We will have more speakers and more opportunities for networking.

The 2021 Virtual Spring Conference will be priced at $500 for members and $800 for non-members.


Your 2020 Conference Payment: Refunds & Alternatives

Your payment for the in-person conference can either be refunded, or you can transfer it to other IMFA offerings.

As an alternative option to a refund, you may transfer your registration funds to the 2021 Virtual Spring Conference, 2021 membership dues, etc. and receive a credit on your account for the remaining balance, if any.

Examples:
If you paid $999 for conference registration, you can use that toward your 2021 dues. If you’re a premier member ($2,500), you would just owe the balance of $1,501 for your 2021 membership.
If you paid the non-member rate of $1,999 for conference registration, then you can use those funds to join IMFA. If you become an Affiliate member at $1,850, then you would have $149 in credits leftover to use on upcoming conferences, webinars, etc. OR you can receive a refund of $149
IMFA has sponsorship opportunities available for upcoming webinars and for our upcoming virtual conferences. Credit on your account may be used toward sponsorship opportunities. More information will be announced closer to webinars/conferences.

Please note that if we do not hear from you about your 2020 payment, we will hold on to your funds and transfer your registration to the expected 2022 in-person conference.
