COVID-19 Response and Cancellation Policy

Of utmost importance to Clemson University and Sonoco FRESH is the safety of everyone involved in planning, executing and attending the Food, Packaging & Sustainability Summit. At this time, we are planning to hold an in-person event on the Clemson Campus, with proper social distancing, sanitization and safety measures in place.

If an in-person event will not be possible, the Summit will be offered virtually. A final decision will be made by November 1, 2020. If the event shifts to a virtual format, anyone who has already registered will receive a 50% refund. Fees for new registrations will be adjusted at that time to reflect virtual pricing.

The Summit cancellation process (regardless of in-person or virtual) is as follows: 28 days prior to event date for 100% refund; 14 days prior to event date for 50% refund; no refund will be given less than 14 days prior to the Summit.

Please send an email to with any questions.
