Growers can now pre-register to attend the premier citrus event of the year! Citrus Expo takes place Aug. 15–16 at the Lee Civic Center in North Fort Myers.
At the event, growers will get updates on cutting-edge research and have a great opportunity to mingle with vendors and industry leaders. AgNet Media is pleased to invite vegetable and specialty crop growers to the event this year. For the first time in Citrus Expo’s 27-year history, seminars will be added to the program that are specifically designed for vegetable and specialty crop growers. Citrus seminars will remain intact for the citrus community. Furthermore, several topics, such as labor, crop insurance and the farm bill, will be of interest to all types of growers. Citrus Expo’s expansion will improve networking and learning opportunities for all, including the vendors who are there to meet their customers and prospects.
This year’s Citrus Expo theme is “Planting Tomorrow’s Profits.” Florida’s citrus industry has been struggling with HLB for 13 years and has changed a lot during that time period. Now, instead of expecting a cure for HLB, growers are looking at how to replant, manage HLB and keep their businesses profitable. If Florida citrus growers have proved anything over the last decade, it’s that they’re not going anywhere. They are going to keep on planting and look toward a profitable future.
Growers will not want to miss this year’s event, so don’t wait, click here or call 352-671-1909 to pre-register. All pre-registered growers will be automatically entered for a chance to win a John Deere gun safe courtesy of Everglades Equipment Group.
Due to a staggering amount of support, we are currently sold out of indoor exhibitor space, but there are outdoor booths available. If you would like to exhibit outdoors or if you would like to be added to the waiting list for an indoor space, please fill out a registration form.
Information about the seminar sessions will be available soon. Be sure to mark your calendar for Citrus Expo’s biggest year yet! To learn more about Citrus Expo, including host hotel information, visit CitrusExpo.net.
