The Southeast Virginia Fruit and Vegetable Conference will be held on February 27, 2020 at the Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church in Suffolk, VA.
This is our second year doing this program, we have combined two long standing annual meetings held in Chesapeake and Suffolk, to make one larger level Fruit and Vegetable Conference. The members of the planning committee for this program are Dr. David Langston, Tidewater AREC; Gail Milteer, VDACS; Elizabeth Pittman, VCE-Suffolk; Livvy Preisser, VCE- IOW; Josh Holland, VCE-Southampton; Watson Lawrence, VCE, Chesapeake; and Roy Flanagan, VCE-VB. We would like to invite you to be a sponsor for this event. Your sponsorship helps make this regional event for growers not only from southeastern Virginia, but we also hope to have growers travel in from NE NC and other areas in Virginia since we are providing more crop specific programming to increase the relevance and impact for their operations. We think that this will be an excellent opportunity for you to talk with them and showcase your services or products.
The facility we have chosen has excellent accessibility from the interstate, state of the art conference facilities, and more than ample space for table top displays for sponsors to exhibit. If there is something specific that you will need, like outside space for equipment on a trailer or electricity for some component of your display, all you need to do is ask.
On behalf of David, Gail, Elizabeth, Livvy, Josh, and Watson, I appreciate your time and consideration of this awesome opportunity.
