Farwest Show Issues Call for Speakers and Topics

Organizers of the 50th annual Farwest Show and conference in Portland have issued a call for speaker proposals for those who might want to present, as well as a seminar survey so attendees can say exactly what they’d like to learn.  The 2023 Farwest Show will take place Aug. 23-25 at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland, Oregon.

“Education has always been a key component of the Farwest Show,” said Heather Cyrus, events and education manager of the Oregon Association of Nurseries, which produces the show. “People come to network, do business and grow as professionals. In planning our seminars, we’re looking for innovation and cutting-edge ideas. We want to make sure people can head home from Farwest truly feeling like they learned something new — something that solves problems; something they can put to work at their business.”

Speakers that have innovative ideas, solutions and business practices they would like to share with others can submit ideas at www.farwestshow.com/speaker_signup/.

Nursery professionals who have ideas for speakers or topics that they want to see, either as a keynote or during educational seminars, can take the Farwest Seminar Survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/3S8FLF7.
