Explore the 2020 Citrus Expo Seminar schedule as the virtual event draws near, scheduled for August 19th and 20th.

The 2020 Citrus Expo is virtual this year, owing to the challenges presented by Covid 19. Slated for August 19th and 20th, the Citrus Expo Seminar schedule has been released. See the details below.

2020 Citrus Expo Seminar Schedule

The expo kicks off at 9:30 a.m., and the sessions are broken into three categories: General Sessions, Citrus Sessions, and Vegetable and Specialty Crop Sessions. Participants who view the sessions when they are “live” are eligible to win one of four gift cards, but videos of the sessions can be viewed after the Citrus Expo.
