Southern Innovations Symposium, the newly named Southeast Produce Council (SEPC) Fall Conference, will be held Sept. 17-19 at the Wild Dunes Resort in Charleston, South Carolina.

New to the conference this year is the Southern Innovations Bright Ideas Platform, a mini trade show featuring new and innovative ideas in produce. The Bright Ideas Platform will be held from 12:30-3 p.m. Sept. 18.

The conference will host industry suppliers, retailers and food service attendees. The weekend will include a general session, educational workshops, golf, inshore fishing, a Charleston plantation tour, team building for the ladies of Southern Roots and the annual tailgate party. There also will be special celebrity guests and a special donation to a local charity.

“Charleston will offer our guests the best in Southern hospitality, while providing some of the best networking and education in the industry,” said David Sherrod, SEPC executive director. “The new Bright Ideas Platform is shaping up to showcase the best and innovative ideas produce has to offer, and we’re looking forward to providing our members with a fresh intimate networking platform from which to build their relationships and businesses.”

All SEPC member companies are invited to apply to exhibit at the Bright Ideas Platform, but only 50 spots are available on a first come, first served basis. The SEPC Education Committee will review applications. The qualifying product or service must be scheduled to released between March 23-Dec. 14, 2015, and must be new to the Southeast market area.
