WILMINGTON, Ohio — Agricultural leaders from Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio, have partnered to organize the sixth annual Ohio River Valley Farm Marketing Conference, being held Feb. 19-20 at the Roberts Convention Centre in Wilmington, Ohio.

Registration is $50 for two days and $40 for one day. Registration deadline is Feb. 12.

New strategies

The two-day event was developed for producers involved in various types of direct marketing who are looking for new or additional marketing strategies.

Participants have the opportunity to experience a variety of presentations, workshops and discussions focused on directly marketing agricultural products to the consumer.

Three breakout sessions are being offered on the following topics: local food trends, marketing your product and meat product marketing.

A trade show will also be included in the event.

The conference will kick off with the “Taste of Regional Cuisine” reception, where a sampling of products produced in the tristate area will be provided with producers and food purveyors available to discuss the elements of a successful buying arrangement.
