The 2020 Florida Citrus Show will be here before you know it. Scheduled for Jan. 22-23 at the Havert L. Fenn Center in Ft. Pierce, this year’s event aims to keep the momentum going after a bounce-back year from Hurricane Irma.
Here are three reasons you should consider attending:
No. 1: Networking
There’s no better place to catch up with your fellow growers and other industry stakeholders than the Florida Citrus Show. During breaks and lunches, the trade show floor is abuzz with activity, conversations, laughter, and displays of the latest products and services needed to grow a successful crop. On the afternoon of day one, attendees can attend a special happy hour, allowing more time to network over food and drink.
No. 2: Education
The Florida Citrus Show education committee has drafted an excellent education program that provides growers with the latest information on production tactics and what’s happening in the markets. Some of the topics that will be covered include high-density plantings, nutrition, root health, and new varieties and rootstocks. New to this year’s show, growers will have the opportunity to hear from commercial suppliers about solutions being put to work in the groves today.
No. 3: Good Eats
The show will feature a free lunch catered by the popular Moonswiners. And new this year, Moonswiners will cater lunch on the second day as well. So come enjoy some good BBQ. Be sure and register by Jan. 15 to secure your free lunch on Monday. And don’t miss the opportunity to sample the new varieties in development by UF/IFAS and USDA at special tastings on the trade show floor.
