The Florida Citrus Show is introducing a new look, location and format.
The 2023 trade show design is a tailgate gathering. Exhibitors will be showcasing tailgate-style food items to share with growers and industry attendees. The trade show, which will take place in the parking lot between the USDA and UF/IFAS buildings, will open to growers for breakfast before and during the general session. Then, from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m., the trade show becomes a tailgate party where growers can enjoy culinary sampling while networking with exhibitors and other attendees.
Who: The Florida Citrus Show targets citrus growers on Florida’s Treasure Coast and surrounding areas. This year, AgNet Media is expanding the show to include the region’s vegetable and specialty crop growers, along with new educational sessions geared toward those growers.
Why: The Florida Citrus Show brings together growers of some of the state’s highest-value crops. The show will offer a fun and exciting platform for industry networking and interaction.
