On Wednesday morning, growers can attend a general session featuring distinguished speakers from throughout the United States. This session will cover topics such as labor, crop insurance, Hurricane Irma relief dollars and more. No matter what you grow, this session is for you.

For the first time in Citrus Expo history, a seminar program tailored to vegetable and specialty crop growers has been added to the educational program. Concurrent citrus and vegetable and specialty sessions will begin on Wednesday afternoon and will continue on Thursday. The full seminar schedule is available. Click here to view the schedule.

There’s good news for citrus growers! Citrus Expo has extended the citrus program! Traditionally, the educational program ends when the trade show closes on Thursday at 2 p.m., but this year Expo is extending the citrus seminars to 4:35 p.m.! Be sure to stick around for great presentations by some top-notch researchers from the University of Florida.

Join Us at the Citrus Expo Networking Reception!

On Wednesday, beginning at 3:30 p.m., the trade show hall will come alive with food, drinks and music! The Networking Reception, which will include complimentary appetizers and an open bar, will provide a great opportunity for growers to mingle with their peers and the Citrus Expo exhibitors.

Also during the Networking Reception, two lucky winners will go home with a fantastic prize thanks to our annual FFA raffle! Citrus Expo is proud to partner with the FFA each year to help support the future of Florida agriculture. Be sure to find an FFA officer on Wednesday at the trade show to buy raffle tickets and support a great cause.
