The onion industry will be represented by more than 100 exhibitors at this year’s PMA Fresh Summit in Atlanta, GA. The expo runs Oct. 23-25 at the Atlanta World Congress Center, and the PMA web site has announced 20,000 attendees and 900 exhibitors from over 60 countries will thrust Fresh Summit into the “center of the produce and floral marketing universe…”
As PMA says, the October event is “where contacts are formed, trends are revealed, ideas are exchanged and careers are made.”
Onion insiders can meet with growers, packers, processors, wholesale distributors, brokers, seed companies, packaging and equipment companies and others at the enormous networking opportunity.
The association’s web site, www.pma.com, offers a filter for onion-industry listings at http://s15.a2zinc.net/clients/PMA_freshsummit/15/Public/Exhibitors.aspx?Keyword=onion#
A-Z you’ll find “Olathe Sweet” Sweet Corn and John Harold’s onions all the way through Young Guns Produce and Billy the Kid Produce. Each of this country’s onion-production areas is represented, along with departments of agriculture, marketing orders, commodity groups, growers’ associations and international operations.
OnionBusiness.com will be in attendance, walking the exhibit hall to greet old friends and make new ones. See you in Atlanta!
