Washington DC, US: The 121st IARW-WFLO Convention that takes place from 21 to 26 April 21-26, in Tucson, Arizona, US, is billed at the world’s largest public refrigerated warehousing and logistics event.

Organised by the International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses (IARW) and World Food Logistics Organization (WFLO) it is expected to attract 700 industry leaders.

This year’s event has the theme “Energize Success,” and is tailored to help industry leaders develop new strategies for success, says IARW and WFLO president and chief executive Bill Hudson.

“We’re offering more educational programming than ever before and a sold-out expo to provide attendees with a comprehensive overview of the latest technologies, trends, and best practices,” he says.
