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.

The West Coast has always produced the nations’ greatest concentration of fresh produce, while also boasting 47 of the nation’s largest retail headquarters.  With a total of nearly 400 Retail Chains, 2,200 retail single units, 500 wholesalers, and 1,000 Foodservice Distributors, the west coast is the ideal setting to connect and create lasting and valuable business relationships.

The West Coast Produce Expo will be a much different experience than other traditional shows.  The setting will be casual, yet professional and designed to create an appeal that incorporates the needs of high level business meeting - but surrounded by fun, relaxing, and social activity.  The destination appeal combined with an outstanding program and expo will easily make this event one of the premier meetings for anyone in the produce industry.
