Why Attend?

Last Year’s Agenda

Updates for 2021

FDLI remains committed to providing high-quality educational programs while keeping our members and event attendees safe during the current pandemic. With this in mind, we are excited to announce that the 2021 Food Advertising, Labeling, and Litigation Conference will be a virtual event. Please know we are actively exploring options to ensure an engaging and enjoyable experience with ample opportunities to connect with your peers. Be sure to check the course website regularly for additional announcements and updates.

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 virtual 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.
