Day 3: Friday, October 18
The day began with the 5K Race for Talent, a fundraiser for PMA’s Center for Growing Talent.
The Fresh Ideas Showcase gave attendees a preview of new products and services for produce and floral departments.
"Big Voices" were in attendance again with a presentation from Earvin "Magic" Johnson, chairman and CEO of Magic Johnson Enterprises.
I was excited for today’s speech because I order flowers & eat fresh fruits & vegetables from companies that were represented at the event like my friends Joe & Sharon Hernandez at Melissa’s. Thank you to CEO of Naturipe Farms Dwight Ferguson & PMA CEO Cathy Burns for having me! pic.twitter.com/LwEofWGAZ1— Earvin Magic Johnson (@MagicJohnson) October 18, 2019
