Western Growers will hold its 2021 Annual Meeting at the Fairmont Grand Del Mar in San Diego, from November 7-10, as the western produce industry celebrates the return of in-person events with a robust program.
“We are looking forward to greeting everyone in San Diego,” said Western Growers CEO and President Dave Puglia. “The pandemic shut-downs taught us all to adapt in our professional lives, but nothing replaces being together in person. This will be a memorable occasion as we reconnect and refocus.”
“Grow Together,” the theme of the event, symbolizes the hallmark of the Western Growers Annual Meeting since its inception nearly a century ago: colleagues and competitors coming together to tackle issues of mutual concern and forge collaborative solutions that benefit the broader fresh produce industry.
“With the challenges of last year in the rearview mirror, we are refocusing on the long-term competitiveness and viability of our industry,” said Western Growers Chairman and Partner at Talley Farms Ryan Talley.
For past attendees, the format for the 2021 Annual Meeting will be a return to the familiar, featuring the networking, educational and social gatherings that have formed the core of the meeting for many years. There will be several workshops, the Chairman’s Address as well as the closing dinner, which will recognize this year’s recipient of the Award of Honor. The always-popular golf tournament will be held during the closing day of the Annual Meeting at the resort’s beautiful championship golf course.
