The Expo kicks off on Wednesday, Aug. 16 at 7:30 a.m. with complimentary breakfast in the trade show hall.

Directly after the general session, make your way to the trade show hall to enjoy a BBQ rib lunch. The winner of the gun safe giveaway will be announced during lunch. Starting at 1:50 p.m., concurrent citrus and vegetable/specialty crop sessions will occur.

The networking reception is sure to be a highlight of the Expo. From 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., the trade show hall will be filled with good times and great food. Complete your day with a cold beer or cocktail at the open bar and enjoy chilled shrimp cocktail, fresh fruit and cheese.

Come back to day two of Expo for more educational seminars and the exceptional trade show. On Thursday, the trade show hall will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Chef-carved top sirloin will be served for lunch starting at 11:30 a.m. Stay for giveaways!
