Registration Begins For Sustainable Ag Expo in Monterey

Submitted By: Jim Caudill, July 15, 2010
Paso Robles, Calif. — Exhibitor and Sponsor registration is now open for the Sixth Annual Sustainable Ag Expo, set for November 15-16 in Monterey at the Embassy Suites. Space fills quickly, and is available for a limited time only at www.sustainableagexpo.org or by contacting Kyle Beal Wommack at 805.369.2288 ext. 5 or kyle@vineyardteam.org.

Organized by the Central Coast Vineyard Team, the Expo combines a popular tradeshow with seminars featuring dynamic speakers on crop-specific and general topics facing vineyards and row-crops. Continuing education credits, including laws and regulations hours, are available for PCA, PA, CCA and Water Quality.

The trade show will be featured in a single location this year, and share the ballroom with the Expo’s general sessions. Decision makers representing more than 125,000 acres of vineyards and row-crops attend the event, which typically sells out.

“This is an incredible opportunity for exhibitors to reach our agricultural community with products and services that help meet the goals of Ag sustainability,” said Kris O’Connor, Executive Director of the CCVT. “Each year we find that participants are ever more knowledgeable and eager to identify and learn more about the issues, goals and solutions for sustainable action.”

A variety of booth sizes and configurations are offered, but in limited numbers. Sponsorships are available at various levels, and these, too, are limited. Both are offered on a first come, first served basis.

Current sponsors include Dow Agro Sciences, Deerpoint Group, Inc., Vintage Nurseries, Monterey Ag Resources and Oro Agri. Additional sponsors include EcoLogistics, California Fresh Fruit and Practical Winery & Vineyard Magazine.

Special room rates are offered with early registration for the Embassy Suites in Seaside. Book online at http://bit.ly/aE1GJN or call 831-393-1115. The Sustainable Ag Expo room block will remain reserved until mid-October, with rates beginning at $124 per night.

Attendee registration opens July 15, with early registration discounts. More than 300 attendees are expected in Monterey for the Sustainable Ag Expo.
