Don’t Miss Florida Agriculture’s Largest Trade Show!

The Citrus & Specialty Crop Expo is less than two months away! The excitement is building as registrations pour in, and seminar speakers are announced. While many of the Expo traditions will remain, there are some new and exciting additions to the show. AgNet Media has added brunch, citrus ice cream and live cooking demonstrations to the event.

In the Aug. 21 general session, attendees can look forward to hearing talks from several ag policy leaders, including Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Wilton Simpson, State Representative Danny Alvarez and State Senator Jay Collins. There will also be a special talk from Fresh From Florida Chef Justin Timineri. In addition to speaking about the Fresh From Florida program in the general session, he will be performing a cooking demonstration on the trade show floor.

Citrus seminars will take place on both days of the show, Aug. 21–22.
