By Lynn Petrak I n this topsy-turvy election year, sights are set on the country's highest office, in Washington, D.C. While no one knows whether a political "October surprise" is in the offing, the nation's capital will be a hot place for discourse on frozen and refrigerated product trends and events that month, as the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Convention is in town from Oct. 22-25 at the Marriott Wardman Park. ought leaders and executives from across the industry will gather during the convention to network and glean the latest information and education about their categories, to ultimately deliver on marketplace demands and bolster their respective businesses. Additionally, the best and brightest products will be showcased at the annual Golden Penguin Awards presentation, while the newest products to hit the mar- ket will be available for sampling.

"e National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Convention is a 'working' convention that con- nects over 1,100 top executives for the purpose of conducting one-on-one business meetings," Ruma- September 2016 | | 115
