The Great Lakes Fruit, Vegetable and Farm Market EXPO announced in a news release on July 30 it is moving the December event to a virtual format. 

According to the release, after running various scenarios, discussing options and investigating every possibility, the Expo board decided the best way to fulfill GLEXPO’s mission to be the premier fruit, vegetable and farm market event this year, and in the future, was to move onto a virtual platform.

“Moving the Expo from an in-person experience to a virtual platform was the last choice we wanted to make,” said Adam VanDyk, president of the Great Lakes EXPO, in the release. “We recognize that a significant advantage of the Expo is the networking with friends and business associates. The Expo board is working to bring as much of the in-person feel we are used to onto a virtual platform.”

The Great Lakes EXPO will be held online Dec. 8 to 10. The Greenhouse Expo, which runs concurrently with the Great Lakes EXPO, will also be held virtually. 

More details will be released in the coming months. To view the full news release, go to:
