Over the past few weeks, we have been closely following the tragic events that have hit Mexico and we are deeply moved by the devastation these natural disasters have left in their wake. Our thoughts and well-wishes go out to all those affected by these earthquakes.
We'd like to thank the many local GFSI community members who have been incredibly helpful as we assessed what action to take in regards to the GFSI Focus Day Mexico, planned for 8 November of this year in Mexico City.
In light of the current situation, we have come to a collective decision to reschedule this Focus Day. Mexico remains an important country for GFSI's regional development and we believe there are opportunities to support collaborative food safety advancement in this area. To that end, we have decided not to cancel the event, rather to reschedule. We are happy to announce that the Focus Day will take place in Mexico City at the new date of May 3rd, 2018.
Our local agency Groups2Go and the Hilton Reforma Mexico City have been instrumental in making this rescheduling possible and we are heartened to see the goodwill and teamwork of the community coming together to accommodate the after-math of these disasters.
We hope you will be able to join us at the Focus Day next spring. We will proceed to reimburse all registration fees and hope we can count on you to re-register to join the May 3rd Focus Day. We apologize for the inconvenience, and we sincerely thank you for your continued support. We hope to have many opportunities going forward to meet in better circumstances.
The CGF / GFSI Team
