ASTA’s 60th Vegetable & Flower Seed Conference Going Virtual

The Canadian Seed Growers' Association held its virtual meeting on July 7.

ASTA’s 60th Vegetable & Flower Seed Conference, formerly planned for Orlando, Florida, will be held virtual, February 1-3, 2021. The difficult but necessary decision was made by the ASTA Board of Directors, along with the ASTA Vegetable & Flower Seed Division, due to ongoing international and company travel restrictions, and out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of ASTA attendees.

The virtual event, opening for registration later this month, will feature a robust schedule of education, virtual exhibits and trading tables, one-to-one appointment setting, and – for the first time ever – will be connected to the CSS Seed Expo trade show floor for additional options to learn more about the latest products, services and innovations in the seed industry. Registration rates will be the lowest ever offered – at 80% off the usual registration rate – and ASTA expects the largest attendance in history for the event.

Visit the conference website and stay tuned for more updates later in the month.
