Trade shows feature MIchigan agriculture

The Michigan Department of Agriculture & Rural Development is hosting Michigan Pavilions at the 2011 Michigan Restaurant Association and Michigan Grocers Association shows. The deadline for reserving booth space is July 14.
The Michigan Pavilion is a selected area within the trade show where Michigan’s agriculture-based companies are identified for attendees while promoting their Michigan made products. Both events will be attended by industry insiders such as buyers and distributors.
Through federal grant dollars, both trade associations and MDARD are offering booth space at significantly discounted prices with additional discounts to specialty crop companies.
The Michigan Restaurant Association show is Sept. 12 at Shanty Creek Resorts in Bellaire. Visit www.michigangrocers.org/e_fallconf.htm.
The Michigan Restaurant Association show is 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 18 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 19 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. Visit mravideos.com/2011tradeshow/index.html or contact Joanne Jansz at JanszJ@michigan.gov or 517-373-2469.
