Citrus Expo: A Great Place to Network

Ron Hamel

Attendees are preparing for the highly anticipated 2017 Citrus Expo. Ron Hamel, executive vice president of the Gulf Citrus Growers Association, views the Expo as a great opportunity to network within the citrus industry.





Citrus Expo will be held August 16–17 at the Lee Civic Center in North Fort Myers, Florida. Pre-registration is now open! All pre-registered growers will be automatically entered into a drawing for a chance to win a John Deere gun safe, courtesy of Everglades Farm Equipment. Register online under the register tab or call 352-671-1909.

As growers pre-register online, they are encouraged to participate in a very short, anonymous survey on bactericide use. Take the survey here. Conducted by AgNet Media in cooperation with the Citrus Research and Development Foundation, the 2017 survey will build on knowledge gathered from the 2016 survey. Results of the survey will be presented during the Citrus Expo seminar program.

Complete details on the seminar schedule will be available soon. To learn more about Citrus Expo, including host hotel information, visit
