Key Industry Players Convene at
Fruit and Vegetable Grower CONNECT

Presented by American Fruit Grower, American Vegetable Grower and Meister Media Worldwide

Fruit and Vegetable Grower CONNECT brings together executives from the largest and most progressive grower operations in North America with senior leadership at the leading industry supplier companies for private, focused meetings to facilitate conversations and build relationships with the people who can affect positive change.


Leaders from the largest and most progressive growing operations in the industry are invited to Fruit and Vegetable Grower CONNECT.

After two full days of pre-arranged meetings and social functions with executive business partners sourced specifically to meet the unique challenges, strategic initiatives, and short- and long-term goals of the grower participants, growers leave Fruit and Vegetable Grower CONNECT with new business relationships, custom solutions and follow-up plans to put what was discussed into practice.



Executives from leading supplier companies are invited to attend Fruit and Vegetable Grower CONNECT in response to the needs, initiatives and strategic growth plans outlined by our grower participants.

Through our concierge services, we handle the heavy lifting when it comes to providing you with insightful operational intel, facilitating meetings, planning out daily onsite schedules and delivering the growers to your private meeting suite. All this preparation is done on your behalf so when it comes time for your private, 50-minute meetings with growers, you can come ready to get to business.

Invaluable INSIGHT. Intentional CONVERSATIONS. Actionable FOLLOW UP.
