It was with extreme regret that NFDA made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Innovation Award contest. As you know, out of concern for the safety and wellbeing of attendees, NFDA canceled the in-person convention in New Orleans and focused on creating the premier virtual convention for both attendees and exhibitors. Unfortunately, given this change, it seemed best to also cancel the Innovation Award.
We are looking forward to having our best convention yet in Nashville where we are confident we will have great attendance. We will accept 2020 entries in 2021; therefore, you will qualify for the 2021 Innovation Award if you launched a new product or service as of January 2019. If you would like more information or have any questions, please reach out to Lorri Wagner at email@example.com.
We appreciate your understanding and especially your interest in this prestigious award!
