Updates for 2021

We are excited to announce that the 2021 Food Advertising, Labeling, and Litigation Conference will be a hybrid event  (both in-person and virtual). Please note that all in-person plans are subject to change as needed to protect the health and safety of the FDLI community. We will continue to stay up-to-date on all local, state, and federal guidelines to ensure that all protocols are being met in order to ensure our in-person educational programs are safe.

Debate and public confusion abound about what manufacturers and retailers can and should say about the products we put into our bodies, often resulting in lengthy and time-consuming lawsuits or government actions.  Join FDLI for this hybrid conference to learn from and interact with leading practitioners and thought leaders in the food and dietary supplement industries, law firms, public health organizations, and regulatory agencies, all of whom will address the biggest issues and challenges in industry advertising, labeling, and litigation.

Call For Proposals

FDLI and the Conference Planning Committee thanks those who participated in the Call for Proposals this spring. The input received from industry stakeholders helps us plan a timely and relevant program. If you submitted a proposal, you will be notified of the status of your proposal in July.

Register by September 17 and SAVE!


To ensure an engaging and enjoyable hybrid experience, there are a limited number of virtual spots available for each hybrid program. As you make your decisions, please consult our FAQ on hybrid events.
