PMA Fresh Summit will Focus on the Future of the Produce Industry
On October 19 and 20, leaders from the produce and floral industries will come together at the Orange County Convention Center for the PMA Fresh Summit. This annual expo will feature 4 Big Ideas, including current industry challenges, innovations, leading through adversity and business creativity. If you are looking to gain key insights into current challenges and future opportunities within the produce and floral industries, PMA Fresh Summit is not to be missed, and ALCO Designs, booth number 701, will be among the exhibitors attending the Summit.
4 Big Voices Shed Light on Current Industry Trends and Challenges
PMA Fresh Summit will feature 4 Big Voices, the keynote speakers that will address leadership, industry-specific topics and innovation. These include:
- Peyton Manning, two-time Super Bowl Champion, will open the summit with a session about leading through adversity.
- PMA CEO Cathy Burns will speak on the State of the Industry, including predictions for the future of the produce industry.
- Greg Williams, Editor in Chief of Wired Magazine, will be the moderator for a discussion with industry innovators on trends and opportunities coming to the industry.
- Leslie Odom, Jr., Hamiltonmusician and actor, will co-host a session exploring storytelling, business and creativity as it relates to produce and floral industries.
These four will speak in a unique format entitled Forums for the Future. These large group forums are presented in a discussion style, not a workshop, so you will have the opportunity to sit in on conversations that will give you important takeaways you can apply to your businesses immediately following the expo.
Exhibitors Showcase Industry Innovations
In addition to the Forums for the Future, Fresh Summit will feature a large selection of vendors and exhibitors that will showcase their innovative ideas, designs and products. The Fresh Ideas Showcase and the main Exhibition Hall will feature everything from seed companies that grow the produce to companies, like ALCO Designs, that create the display products stores use to showcase produce and floral products. Plan some time to explore these exhibitor areas to discover innovative ideas to apply to your own business, all while building important network connections.
ALCO Designs is pleased to be one of the over 1,200 exhibitors attending Fresh Summit. Make plans to attend Fresh summit, and stop by our booth, number 701, while you are there.
