Tradeshow Information and Registration


Are you interested in marketing your products, services, and agricultural innovations to over 500 farmers, managers, and agricultural industry professionals working in Hawaii? To reach various agricultural groups in one place - we invite you to participate in the 2012 Hawaii Agriculture Conference: Leveraging Partnerships for Profit Trade Show.

The Agricultural Leadership Foundation of Hawaii is pleased to announce the dates for the 2012 Statewide Hawaii Agriculture Conference: September 20 & 21, 2012. The two-day event will occur at the Hawaii Convention Center. This years’ event theme is collaboration and profits and will feature inspiring keynote speakers, educational sessions and workshops, a two-day trade show, a pau hana reception, a brief awards presentation and a wonderful Hawaii grown luncheon.

Hawaii farmers and ranchers, nurserymen and flower growers, processors and distributors, exporters, educators, researchers, non-profit, government and community leaders and administrators and other industry professionals will attend sessions highlighting conversations and learning about working together for the sustainability of Hawaii’s agriculture. As we look at global trends and learn how they affect the way we do business we will learn new skills and hear about good projects already in place. Your products and services must be a part of these conversations. We invite your company to be a partner in this important work for the agriculture sector. Exhibit booths are now available, please register today!

The trade show room, Hawaii Convention Center rooms 316 A & B, will host the registration activities, the pau hana reception and food and beverage service throughout the day. It will have wireless Internet and clusters of café tables for attendees to meet and relax. The trade show will be THE place to be! We expect 350 for the conference sessions on Thursday and Friday, 500 for the luncheon on Thursday and an additional 150 at the Pau Hana Reception.

Please join us for an exciting event and great chance to display your products and share information about your services in a relaxed, yet focused, space. Deadline to register for trade show extended to Sept. 10, 2012.
If you have any questions please contact Ally Turner at or 808.240.1096.

We look forward to hearing from you about this excellent joint venture!
