Fresh Summit is right around the corner!  As exhibitors and attendees alike put the final touches on their plans for the booths, the clothes, the meetings and of course, the parties, we're sharing tips to help with the final preparations.

New Expo Dates - Friday and Saturday Only

We cannot remind you enough about this key point!  This year the days when Fresh Summit will take place have changed! The Conference and Opening Party will take place on Thursday, October 19.  The Expo will be open on both Friday and Saturday starting at 10 am and will close each day at 5 pm.  More details are available on the official Fresh Summit schedule.

Create a personalized list of exhibitors to visit with the “My Expo Plan” app available on the Fresh Summit website. Print your list ahead of time or sync it to the Mobile App to make connecting to the right people and places on the show floor easier.

Join the Hurricane Relief Effort

Every year PMA offers exhibitors the chance to donate leftover produce and floral products to local food bank networks totaling between 250,000 and 300,000 pounds each year! 

This year PMA is partnering with Feeding America and the network of local member food banks to reach people in need along the Gulf Coast and Florida providing aid to victims of the recent hurricanes.   To learn more about this special opportunity, read more.

Smart Steps to Take After the Show

Throwing it back to 2013 when we provided a blog post all about making the most of our tradeshow experience after the show which should result in a greater return on investment for your company's participation at the show.  Each one of these key points still holds true to your plan for Fresh Summit in 2017!  We hope you'll agree.
