TheAmerican Frozen Food Institute(AFFI) said its recent 2012 AFFI Frozen Food Convention in San Diego, Feb. 18-22, matched the convention’s all-time attendance record set just two years ago. Officials said that more than 1,400 frozen food industry executives gathered at the Manchester Grand Hyatt  to attend educational sessions, network and conduct business meetings.

“Our record attendance along with the sold-out meeting and exhibit space clearly demonstrate the value members of the frozen food industry derive from attending the AFFI Frozen Food Convention,” said AFFI President and CEO Kraig R. Naasz.

The 2013 AFFI Frozen Food Convention will be held Feb. 23-27, 2013, at the Hilton Anaheim in Anaheim, Calif.
