On March 6 & 7, 2018, the 28th Annual Greenhouse Tomato Short Course was held in Raymond, Mississippi, at the Eagle Ridge Conference Center, 10 miles west of Jackson. You are invited to represent your company's products as an exhibitor at this educational event.
Last year, this program attracted about 100 participants from more than 20 states. These growers come to learn. Some are experienced growers, but most are either relatively new or come to gather information before venturing into the greenhouse business. All are looking for great suppliers. This is where you and your company come in.
Also, we are looking for a few companies interested in helping support the Greenhouse Tomato Short Course by sponsoring coffee breaks or meals. Please contact me if you would like to help out and we can discuss an appropriate level of support. All sponsors will be recognized verbally and with special signs during the program.
To qualify as a vendor, please submit the following Application to Exhibit with a check for $375 by mail, or register online after January 5. See the web site for details. The deadline for registration is February 20.
