Officials with the California Walnut Board and Commission have announced they will be virtually hosting the first-ever CWB & CWC Industry Conference on Tuesday, March 2 and Wednesday, March 3, 2021 from 8 a.m. to noon, PST. All who are interested in the conference are encouraged to register because if for some reason they are unable to attend the live virtual event, they can still receive recorded event content. The two half-day virtual experience will include:
• Speaking sessions and panels for growers, handlers, and industry partners;
• A state of the industry address by Michelle Connelly, Executive Director & CEO of the California Walnut Board and Commission;
• Various educational discussions including “Food Safety - New Era of Smarter Food Safety,” “Advocating for Your Future Success – Trade in 2021 & Beyond,” and “How Data Drives Decision Making in Marketing”;
• Informational sessions with top speakers and panelists including Michele Golden at Mintel Group Ltd. and Laurie Demeritt at The Hartman Group.
“We’re thrilled to be hosting our first-ever industry conference! Although we’d love to be hosting this event in person, shifting to a virtual conference was the most viable option at this time given the current uncertainty caused by the global pandemic. Going virtual will ensure we are able to gather safely with our grower/handler community and other important industry members from various regions in a convenient way,” said Michelle Connelly, Executive Director & CEO of the California Walnut Board and Commission. “Join us for an exciting two-day event filled with the latest insights, research and industry news updates from our industry members, top speakers and panelists.”
