We will hold our General Business Session at the U.S. Capitol this year which will provide an interesting change in venue. All other committee and board meetings will be held in the Washington Court Hotel. With exports now accounting for more than 20% of our crop by volume and over 30% by value and two pending free trade agreements with Europe and the Pacific Rim, our General Session will focus on international trade. We are planning to have speakers from Congress, USDA and USTR discuss opportunities. And, attendees will be given tours of the beautiful U.S. Capitol building.
Cocktail receptions are planned for both Wednesday and Thursday nights. With the Congress possibly still in session, it is a good time to come to town and visit your political representatives. We welcome political and government representatives at our cocktail receptions.
There are several sponsorship opportunities to get your name in front of industry leaders and customers. And, we have a very limited number of table top exhibit spaces available as well. These forms may be found along with meeting registration.
Please make your reservation early as the room block may fill prior to its expiration. You can now make your hotel reservation via the link below or call 1-800-321-3010. The rate for this year’s meeting is $199. Be sure to mention the American Peanut Council when making your reservation.
We look forward to seeing you in D.C.!
