Annual Northwest Michigan Orchard and Vineyard Show will be Jan. 16-17, 2018
Growers are encouraged to attend this two-day, premier educational program to discuss important issues for Michigan fruit industry and much more.
The 2018 Northwest Michigan Orchard and Vineyard Show is scheduled for Jan. 16-17, 2018, at the Grand Traverse Resort in Acme, Michigan. Registration opens at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 16, and the cost for both days is $35, which is payable at the door. The line is often long at the registration desk, so meeting attendees are encouraged to arrive well-before the 9 a.m. start time. Both days will feature educational programs and vendor exhibits.
The exhibit hall will be open during the show to feature vendors of orchard and vineyard equipment and supplies, commodity organizations and other exhibitors.
Tuesday and Wednesday will offer a variety of topics relating to research and information on tart cherries, sweet cherries, apples, wine grapes, berry crops and saskatoons, addressing production and marketing. Wednesday’s general sessions will open with the annual meeting of the Cherry Marketing Institute followed by their luncheon.
The program is co-sponsored by the Grand Traverse Fruit Growers’ Council, Michigan State University Extension, MSU AgBioResearch, Cherry Marketing Institute, Parallel 45 and the Northwest Michigan Horticulture Research Center.
