116th Annual Meeting & NW Hort Expo going virtual

After much consideration, the Washington State Tree Fruit Association, North Central Washington Fieldmen’s Association and Yakima Pom Club have decided to move the 116th Annual Meeting and NW Hort Expo to a virtual platform for recorded and live content, and an interactive trade show for the week of Dec. 7

“Given current COVID-19 trends, it does not seem likely that large group gatherings will be possible in time for the event,” 2020 Annual Meeting Chairman Gary Snyder said in  a news release.  “We remain committed to delivering a world-class conference and trade show for attendees.”

Visit the NW Hort Expo’s website,, for updates on the trade show, and visit WSTFA’s website,, for updates on registration and educational content.
