IFPA Washington Conference Shifting To June

IFPA Washington Conference

Registration has opened for IFPA’s 2024 The Washington Conference, with produce and floral’s most influential public policy event moving to June to better align with the congressional calendar and influence policymakers ahead of the election.

Set for June 10-12 in Washington, D.C., the annual event unites all segments of the fresh produce and floral industry to address the most urgent policy issues with the U.S. Congress and administration. It provides an opportunity for attendees to voice fresh industry priorities and have a say on policies.

Attendees will advocate for these public policy issues:

  • Nutrition and demand creation – The importance of increased and inclusive access to and sustainable demand for healthy fresh produce.
  • Labor and workforce – A strong workforce that meets industry’s needs across the supply chain, focused on finding and retaining the talent needed to grow.
  • Farm Bill and agriculture policy – Understand how the largest investment in food and agriculture affects farm livelihoods, shaping how and what food is grown.

“There is strength in numbers, and we need even more voices and perspectives joining us on Capitol Hill in June before the elections this fall,” said Rebeckah Adcock, IFPA’s VP for U.S. government relations. 

“The Washington Conference offers a great opportunity for attendees to advocate for their business and ensure the long-term health of the industry.”

Attendees will engage with hundreds throughout the produce supply chain, including industry leaders, policy experts, legislative staff and more, at the only event that unites the industry in D.C. 

Registration for the Washington Conference is available on IFPA’s website.
