The Packer will once again connect the world of produce with the West Coast buying community of retailers, food service professionals, and distributors. In this regional event serving the entire west coast, participants will have the opportunity to interact and unwind with the most influential produce industry experts in a professional, yet casual and fun environment.
The two-day event will include regionally targeted educational sessions, field tours through the fertile Coachella valley, exceptional entertainment, energetic networking receptions, a full expo featuring over 150 leading produce suppliers, and a world class golf event to kick off the conference.
The produce industry has demonstrated a significant interest in engaging buyers and sellers at regional events. These events have become popular because of the limited investment of time and money required for participation, the depth of conversation created in a more intimate atmosphere, and the regional focus.
Who Should Attend?
West Coast Produce is designed for retail executives, produce executives and managers, foodservice managers, produce distributors and wholesalers, specialty food retailers, and buyers of produce from any industry.
Who Should Exhibit?
Companies participating in West Coast Produce will include growers, suppliers, wholesalers, and distributors of fruits, vegetables, nuts, and floral. Also included will be packaging and labeling supplies and equipment, produce handling and storage equipment, displays and shelving, shipping and logistics organizations.
The West Coast has always produced the nations’ greatest concentration of fresh produce, while also boasting 47 of the nation’s largest retail headquarters. With a total of nearly 400 Retail Chains, 2,200 retail single units, 500 wholesalers, and 1,000 Foodservice Distributors, the west coast is the ideal setting to connect and create lasting and valuable business relationships.
