Idaho-Eastern Oregon Onion Committee sets dates for VIP Tour
The Idaho-Eastern Oregon Onion Committee is now taking applications for this year’s Onion Country VIP Tour, which has been scheduled for Oct. 5-7 in the Treasure Valley.
Airfare, lodging, meals and group ground transportation are being provided to selected buyers, who will be met at the Boise, ID, airport on Thursday, Oct. 5, and taken to Ontario, OR, and their lodging. An industry dinner will be hosted by the committee that night.
A preliminary agenda has been set for Friday, Oct. 6, and includes visits to several Treasure Valley onion packingsheds where buyers will meet with shippers and sales staff. In addition buyers will be taken to a number of onion fields where harvest is taking place. The committee will also host a Friday industry luncheon at midday and a dinner that evening.
The VIPs have the option on Saturday to arrange for a continued stay, or they will be provided with transportation to the Boise airport for their return flights. VIPs who stay over will be treated to a Boise State University football game.
