For those who attended the 2014 SFPA Convention at historic Saint Simons Island they will tell you it was one of their best ever. We intend to repeat the success as our members urged us to select it and the King & Prince Resort for our 2017 convention, October 19-21.
Opening in 1935 as a seaside dance club, the King & Prince Hotel opened in 1941 to national acclaim for its amenities and exceptional ocean views.
Be ready for another outstanding convention when the SFPA returns to the King & Prince Resort on Saint Simons Island, Georgia. Mark your calendar now for October 19-21st.
For SFPA members the King & Prince Resort is a perfect location for bringing the spouse for sunbathing, historic tours and delicious seafood from nearby restaurants.

Members mark their calendars for a weekend each October for the SFPA Convention. Held in destinations ranging from Asheville, NC to Charleston, Hilton Head Island, SC and Savannah and Brunswick, GA, it’s a time of networking, learning and fun with fellow members and their spouses.
A welcome reception is held on Thursday night, followed by a morning breakfast and general session. Here, top industry experts share insights to topics essential to the success of a food processor. Food processors typically share samples of their own brands with other members and associate members can display their products at exhibits. Friday afternoon includes a member golf tournament and other activities, tours, etc. Members gather again Friday night for a casual dinner and entertainment.
Saturday begins with breakfast and the second general session with more top expert presentations, followed by an afternoon that may include a tennis tournament, group excursion, or free time. Members attend a silent auction and raffle to benefit the association’s scholarship fund, followed by a semi-formal dinner and installation of the new president of the association.
Associate members can invest in various sponsorship levels to support the convention ranging from an exhibit table, to hospitality suite and other events during the convention.
