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, California.
This year's show features a slightly enlarged trade show floor to accommodate more booths.
Dedicated to bringing together producers and buyers of the organic fresh produce industry, OPS 2023 will follow the success of previous OPS events and retain a similar format for attendees. In addition to an informative series of educational sessions, 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 developing a dynamic program with 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 seek. We also have some fresh and exciting new facets to the program this year."
