2011 Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention
February 1 to 3 – Hershey Lodge and Convention Center
The Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention has become the premier grower meeting in the Northeast combining three days of six or more concurrent educational sessions with a large industry trade show and numerous networking opportunities – all designed to enable fruit, vegetable and berry growers as well as direct marketers to stay on the cutting edge of their industries. This year there will be three special pre-convention workshops (see details below) on January 31. About 1,900 persons from throughout the mid-Atlantic region and beyond gather each year at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center for the Convention. Registration is open to all interested commercial fruit, vegetable and berry growers, direct marketers and allied industry personnel.
For the second year, there will also special sessions for Spanish-speaking employees on the second day of the Convention, February 2. See the Schedule for further details. Each employee attending the Spanish sessions must pay the regular registration rate but there is no additional charge for the sessions. Employees of members of one of the four sponsoring organizations are eligible for the members registration rate.
