No in-person New England Vegetable and Fruit Conference in December 2021

The New England Vegetable and Fruit Conference Planning Committee has made the difficult decision not to hold an in-person New England Vegetable and Fruit Conference in December 2021 as originally planned, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Instead, we will hold an in-person meeting when we feel more confident that we can do so safely and cost-effectively, and have reserved dates for December 2022 (Dec 13-15, 2022) to gather again in Manchester for a full Conference and Trade Show. While we would all prefer to be in person this year, we feel it is unwise to take on the financial risk of attempting an in-person meeting that may not be well-attended due to COVID-19 safety limitations and travel restrictions.

In the meantime, we will plan a simple online conference this coming December, during the week of Dec 13-17 2021, in order to provide education, professional development, and pesticide credits to growers and service providers across New England and New York. We are hopeful that this coordinated regional effort will be a fun, effective, and safe way to keep up to date with the latest and greatest vegetable and fruit news!

Stay tuned for details as we develop our plan for the December 2021 meeting by checking our conference website or by following us on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

Please note that there will not be a virtual trade show this year. The next in-person trade show will take place in December 2022.
