|(May 7, 2019) Monterey, CA – Exhibitor booth registration is now open for the Organic Grower Summit (OGS) on December 4-5, 2019, in Monterey, California. Organic supply chain partners and service providers are encouraged to sign up for a booth at the third annual OGS, which features two days of information, education, and networking opportunities with organic growers.|
Produced by CCOF and the Organic Produce Network (OPN), OGS will include targeted educational sessions on various aspects of organic production from leading authorities. Additional keynote presentations from influential speakers on a variety of topics, including opportunities in organic produce, meat, dairy, and processed organic items, are also on the two-day agenda.
“There is a strong appetite for information and networking opportunities that bring together the various sectors of the organic community. OGS is an outstanding opportunity to exchange ideas and information that help us advance organic for a healthy world,” said Kelly Damewood, CEO of CCOF.
With 25 sponsors already committed to participating at OGS, exhibitors will include seed, packaging, soil amendment, food safety, ag technology, and equipment manufacturers connecting with organic field production staff, supply chain managers, pest management advisors, and food safety experts.
“The organic community truly sees the benefit of an event connecting organic growers and farmers with those in the supply and service chain. As organic continues to grow, the need for expanded education and information throughout the farming community is paramount to its continued success,” said Tonya Antle, co-founder of OPN. “Working together with CCOF, OGS is the right event to bring all components of our community together to exchange ideas and information.”
OGS will be held December 4-5, 2019 at the Monterey Conference Center in Monterey, California. General registration is slated to open in July, with components of the educational program, including session topics and speakers, to be released in the coming months.
To date, 22 companies have signed on as sponsors of the event, including:
