The Countdown Is On!

The Citrus & Specialty Crop Expo is less than one month away, and there is so much to look forward to. The Expo will include top-notch seminars, food, fun and giveaways galore. For the first time ever, the Expo will be held at the Florida State Fairgrounds in Tampa. The fairgrounds have been a central site for the state’s agricultural gatherings for years. AgNet Media is excited to bring the Citrus & Specialty Crop Expo to Tampa.

Top-Notch Seminars

The 2023 seminar schedule is one you won’t want to miss. Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Wilton Simpson will be delivering the keynote address during the general session. After the general session, concurrent citrus and vegetable/specialty crop sessions will occur.

Food and Fun

There are plenty of opportunities for great food and sweet treats at Expo. In addition to complimentary breakfast and lunch served on both days, thanks to our premier meal sponsor, The Tree Defender, ice cream will be available courtesy of Redox Bio-Nutrients. Stop and cool off at the Redox Bio-Nutrients/Ag Nutrients booth with some delicious ice cream from Tampa’s Revolution Ice Cream.

The Expo has plenty of options to quench your thirst. Keep an eye out for tasty orange juice provided by Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Co. Juice will be available in coolers throughout the trade show and seminar hall. Water bottles will also be available courtesy of Florida Grove Hedgers. Be sure to stick around on Wednesday for the networking reception sponsored by Florida Coast Equipment, AgMax LLC, DEUTZ Power Central Florida, Howell Oil Company and Irritec. The reception will take place from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on the trade show floor. You won’t want to miss this party! Hors d’oeuvres and an open bar will be available. So, kick back and enjoy networking with your peers.

Giveaways Galore

Don’t leave the Expo empty handed! During the networking reception, stop by the Burch Corporation booth to grab a complimentary cigar. There are also opportunities to win big. A John Deere gun safe and pull-behind smoker will be given away. All preregistered growers will be entered to win the gun safe, courtesy of Everglades Equipment Group.
