Organic Produce Summit opens retailer registration
Retailer registration for Organic Produce Summit 2023 is now open, with qualified individuals from retail and direct-to-consumer buying organizations eligible for complimentary registration and hotel accommodations. The seventh annual OPS will be held July 12-13 at the Monterey Conference Center in Monterey, CA.
As the only event dedicated exclusively to bringing together producers and buyers of the organic fresh produce industry, OPS 2023 will follow the overwhelming success of previous OPS events and retain a similar format for attendees. In addition to an informative series of educational sessions, engaging keynote presentations and a sold-out trade show floor featuring over 170 organic growers, shippers and processors from across North America, retailers and buyers will have a hands-on opportunity to tour four respected organic fresh produce companies.
“We are thrilled with the tremendous feedback and response from the organic community since the inception of OPS, and we’re looking to make OPS 2023 the best yet,” said Susan Canales, president of Organic Produce Summit. “We’re putting together a dynamic program that features an impactful and relevant educational program touching on important industry issues and objectives. Our sold-out trade show floor has been slightly enlarged to accommodate more booths, but we will retain the intimacy and energy our attendees are seeking. And we have some fresh and exciting new facets to the program for this year.”
New at OPS 2023 will be the first ever retailer field tour opportunity to see an innovative Controlled Environment Agriculture operation. Also on tap is a pre-reception cocktail event for first time and “new to the industry” OPS attendees.
Complete details of OPS 2023 will be announced over the next several months. General attendee registration for OPS 2023 will open Monday, Feb. 13.
