Bus Tour – The convention begins with a three-day School on Wheels. This popular tour will travel from Portland to Seattle, Washington to Willamette Valley, Oregon. Each bus will have an individualized focus to give attendees an in depth opportunity to network and share subject matter that is important to them.
Trade Show and Participation Day – This unique trade show features the latest products and services available for farm retail and on-farm entertainment. Along with the trade show, this day offers numerous organized and informal events to network and learn from others.
Workshops and Concurrent Sessions – A day of full-day workshops and mix and match half day workshops will bring professional speakers from the industry as well as some from outside the industry who will provide information how essential business practices can help grow a farm retail business. Track topics for the day of concurrent and general sessions will include Food on the Farm, That's Agritainment, Staff Training, Technology, and Marketing & Managing Your Business.
Networking Opportunities – The NAFDMA Convention is an excellent place for direct marketing farmers and agritourism operators to connect with other like-minded people to share and collect information. Attendees will find new ideas, new products and new inspiration – whether their farm is relatively new, or has been in the family for generations. Opportunities present themselves through contests celebrating best practices, roundtable discussions, town hall meetings, and receptions.
