Mark your calendars for the Society of American Florists’ (SAF) 20th Annual Conference on Pest Management on Ornamentals, February 20-22 at the San Jose Doubletree in San Jose, Calif. Conference exhibitors will present their products and services to more than 150 of the industry’s leading growers, production managers and pesticide applicators.
“The Pest Management Conference is the premier gathering of growers, university researchers and manufacturing companies,” says Bruce Kidd, a pest control advisor for Dow AgroSciences. “I have always appreciated the opportunity to compare notes with people from around the country who are working on common problems. The SAF format provides valuable opportunities for discussing questions and sharing — that’s why I’ve gone for the last five years.”
Only 25 exhibitors are accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. The $500 tabletop exhibit fee includes conference registration, 24-hour visibility during the conference, inclusion in the conference program and on SAF’s Web site (www.safnow.org ) and presentation time. SAF has a block of rooms set aside at the San Jose Doubletree. Based on availability, rooms are $95 until January 20. To make your reservation, call (408) 453-4000. Be sure to mention that you are with SAF.
