THANKS FOR MAKING OFVC 2014 A GREAT SUCCESS
Another successful convention has drawn to a close. We thanks all attendees, exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers for making 2014 a huge success. See you next February.
The Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Convention is an annual gathering of horticultural crop producers, primarily involved in the production of fruits and vegetables, from across Ontario, Canada and the United States. The 2-day convention is located at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls, Ontario, and features a great lineup of horticultural experts, topical sessions, trade show exhibitors and great networking opportunities. Now entering its 12th year, discover for yourself why it is called Canada's Premier Horticultural Event.
