PISC is the event of the year for anyone interested in the current state of the animal food industry. Every year, past attendees recommend PISC as the best meeting for buyers and sellers of ingredients.

"PISC is a great conference for those in the animal food industry to attend," said Kara Cagle of Tysons.

"Not only do you get to hear relevant information from the speakers, it is a perfect opportunity to network with industry professionals, build on existing relationships and create new ones."

A new format is underway for 2017, with the event beginning on Tuesday and running through Thursday afternoon.

Conference favourites, golf tournament, sporting clays, networking opportunities and receptions are still staples on the agenda.

Event speakers include Kevin Folta, Ph.D., University of Florida, who will speak about "Failing to Feed a Hungry World," and Teri Yanovitch, former Disney Institute speaker, who will engage attendees on "The Magic of the 'Pixie Dust' Customer Service, a Way of Life for Disney."

AFIA will offer its "Buyers to Orlando" scholarship program and, for the second time, the PISC committee will host a "Suppliers Product Showcase," allowing suppliers to showcase products during meet and greet sessions.
