The COVID-19 pandemic continues to shut down food and agriculture tradeshows and conferences. SupplySide West and Food Ingredients North America and the 2020 Organic Growers Summit have been cancelled while the MOSES Organic Farming Conference will be held online only.

SupplySide West and Food Ingredients North America scheduled for October 27-30 in Las Vegas was cancelled and re-scheduled for October 25-28 in 2021.

The 2020 Organic Grower Summit, bringing together organic growers and producers with their supply chain partners and service providers, has cancelled due to the impact of COVID-19. The event was scheduled for December 9-10, in Monterey, CA.

“Unfortunately, based on the ongoing monitoring of health advisories, and the current resurgence of COVID-19, we have determined in order to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all Organic Grower Summit attendees that we cancel this year’s event,” said Tonya Antle, executive vice president of the Organic Produce Network. “We look forward to hosting OGS 2021, next December in Monterey.”

Meanwhile, the annual MOSES Organic Farming Conference, the largest organic farming conference in the U.S., will be held online only. A statement from MOSES (Midwest Organic Sustainable Education Services) said: “For the health and safety of our community, we’re moving the 2021 MOSES Organic Farming Conference online in February 2021. We’re excited about the possibilities for this event and are working on creative ways to involve our broader community.”
