Tree Fruit Meeting Next Week
It's the biggest tree fruit meeting of the year and it's sneaking up on us quickly. The annual Washington State Tree Fruit Association convention and trade show gets underway this coming Monday at the Yakima Convention Center and Sundome. WSTFA's Stephanie Chance talks about the meeting.
CHANCE: We're really excited for the convention next week. It's come together really great and we have an awesome line up of speakers and topics and it's going to be another really great convention.
Most industry people have been to multiple conventions over the years but for someone who it just coming into the industry, what should they expect?
CHANCE: The exciting thing is seeing that many growers, that many industry affiliates, warehouses, all the companies within the industry just everyone coming together under the same roof for three days and so it's a lot of great information, great sessions but great conversations, good networking. So many meetings being held off-site just with everybody together. It's the largest tree fruit gathering so it's an exciting time.
There is still time to register this week or you can register at the door. Chance says you will want to grab your phone and download the WSTFA app.
CHANCE: The app is great. It has all convention schedules, updates, everything right on the app and what's great about an app is everybody has a phone with them so they'll constantly be getting the updates throughout the meeting.
