EVENT DESCRIPTION

Some information may be missing. EIA was unable to reach the event manager.

Event Overview:

The produce industry’s No. 1 source for breaking news, new product information and industry trends, The Packer now brings that depth of expertise to Minneapolis.  When was the last major produce event that called Minneapolis home? We can’t remember either! What better chance to bring the freshest products to one of the nation’s freshest cities.

As a business that relishes the role of being first to the market, The Packer is extremely excited to announce the Midwest Produce Conference & Expo will take up residence in the spectacular city of Minneapolis in 2015.

By merging a focused conference program, networking events and retail tour with an expo of leading suppliers, Midwest Produce fills a niche in the region for produce growers, shippers, regional retailers and wholesalers.

Networking Opportunities
All events during the show will be presented in a professional, yet casual, manner to allow for maximum networking. Attendees will share similar competitive environments and the every-day challenges present in all facets of the industry. Exhibitor participation will be to support, not overshadow, retailer interaction.

Tours
Minneapolis is home to many exciting venues, world-class restaurants, national retail chains and niche stores. These will be made available to show attendees in private "backstage" tours. A variety of options will be offered at a small fee to cover transportation expenses.

Exhibitor Information:

Why Exhibit?

The produce industry has demonstrated a significant interest in engaging buyers and sellers at regional events. These events have become popular because of the limited investment of time and money required for participation, the depth of conversation created in a more intimate atmosphere, and the regional focus.

Exhibit booths will be limited to 10'x8' for this fast-paced, but effective, five-hour exposition, and ample time is available for social and networking opportunities over the two days.

About The Packer:

There's no argument that The Packer is the fresh fruit and vegetable industry's leading source for news, information and analysis. The Packer has been reporting every week on the produce industry since 1893. ThePacker.com serves fresh fruit and vegetable growers, packers, and shippers; produce retailers; foodservice distributors; fresh-cut processors; wholesale produce distributors, and allied product and service providers.
