INFORMATION

The Mid-Atlantic Fruit and Vegetable Convention (MAFVC) is held each year to provide the latest updates and important information to fruit and vegetable growers from Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and surrounding states. The 2020 conference will be held at the Hershey Lodge and Convention Center in Hershey, PA. on January 28 to January 30, 2020.

This year’s convention will feature several pre-convention workshops, a farm market bus tour, and a trade show with over 170 exhibitors plus three full days of six or more concurrent educational sessions. Sessions on tree fruits, small fruits, wine grapes, organic and general vegetables, marketing, and many other topics are scheduled.

This year’s keynote speaker is Todd Hunt and his presentation on January 28 will be entitled “Communication Bleeps and Blunders in Business”. This is an insightful look at improving communication to become more successful…with dozens of everyday examples that will leave you chuckling in recognition.

Pesticide applicator credits will be available for Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey growers that attend the sessions.

The program is jointly sponsored by Maryland State Horticultural Society, University of Maryland Extension, State Horticultural Association of Pennsylvania, Pennsylvania Vegetable Growers Association, Pennsylvania State University Cooperative Extension, New Jersey State Horticultural Society, Rutgers Cooperative Extension, Virginia Horticultural Society, and Virginia Cooperative Extension.
