The United Fresh Produce Association has announced locations and dates for its next four conventions and expos.

The association’s four-year cycle for the trade show is:

  • June 16-18, 2020, San Diego;
  • April 21-23, 2021, Los Angeles;
  • May 9-11, 2022, Boston; and
  • April 18-20, 2023, San Diego.

Chicago has been the United Fresh show’s home since 2014. In 2013, the event was in San Diego.

“Chicago has been good to us,” Tom Stenzel, United Fresh president and CEO, said in a news release. “But the time has come for us to broaden opportunities across the industry by taking the show on the road.”
Stenzel also noted the date of the shows starting in 2021.

“After next year, we’ll also be moving back into our traditional late spring timetable to enhance our attendee experience,” he said in the release.

Next year’s United Fresh convention will feature a celebration of the 25th year of the United Fresh Produce Industry Leadership Program and its 300 alumni.
