Anticipation for the 2021 Citrus, Vegetable and Specialty Crop Expo is rising for many, including Ray Royce, executive director of the Highlands Country Citrus Growers Association (HCCGA).
“Growers in our area always look forward to the Expo because it gives them a great opportunity to attend a very well organized and thought-out group of seminar sessions, visit the trade show with a number of vendors they do business with, and network and interact with fellow growers,” says Royce.
Royce says he and his HCCGA members are most excited to be back in person this year and believe Expo is the place to get the latest and greatest information.
“I think our growers are looking forward to being able to get back to some in-person learning,” Royce says. “Having seen the slate of speakers for this years sessions, it’s a great set of topics, a great set of speakers, and I’m sure growers will be very interested in getting down there and hearing from those folks.”
The 2021 Citrus, Vegetable and Specialty Crop Expo will take place Aug. 18–19 at the Lee Civic Center in North Fort Myers, Florida. Preregistration is now open!
