The United States Lavender Conference is the only national conference of its kind. This year's conference has a culinary theme, and offers opportunities for education for growers and artisans of all experience levels.
We are planning an experience in Mesa, AZ that will give you the opportunity to gain something from the conference that will help lavender industry professionals "bloom" where they're planted! This time, we have expanded the conference to three tracks related to levels of experience and interest, so even though you are not locked in to attend just one track, you can more clearly see how to customize your conference experience.
I Want to Start a Lavender Farm - For those seeking advice and knowledge about what it takes to grow lavender as a crop and to explore various business models for converting lavender into profit.
I Have a Lavender Farm - For those who have an established farm and want to gain skill and knowledge about current issues from leading experts in the field.
I Want to Use Lavender - For the gardener or business owner who wants to understand the use of lavender and discover creative ideas for cooking and crafting with lavender.
USLC 2017 will also be offering an experience that includes the culture of agritourism and Farm to Table cuisine in Mesa.
Why should you sponsor?
The United States Lavender Growers Association is in the final planning stages for the 2017 United States Lavender Conference. The United States Lavender Conference provides resources and learning tools for those affiliated with the Lavender industry. We anticipate that 250 lavender farmers, budding growers, and industry professionals will attend. With an additional focus on culinary uses, product making, and packaging we are able to attract a wide scope of professionals in the lavender industry.
The main events of the Conference will take place during two days, and will be held in Mesa, Arizona. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from successful and knowledgeable individuals in their industry, network with like-minded professionals, and explore some of the agri-tourism attractions which can be found in Mesa.
We are looking for sponsors. Because of the unique layout of the conference, and the resources that the area has provided us, we are able to give more personalized marketing opportunities to our sponsors than ever before. High level sponsors will have opportunities available to uniquely market to, and in some cases personally interact with, conference attendees. In addition, sponsors will receive public media attention in the months leading up to the conference, including special mention in any advertisements and related articles.
We have included a list of sponsorship opportunities. Please look over the options available and do not hesitate to contact us with any questions you may have. We will follow up with you in a few weeks. Thank you for your time and consideration!
In2011, a small group of lavender growers and crafters came together to address a need. There were several regional lavender associations, but no national group. An association at a national level was seen as needed by many.
The United States Lavender Growers Association was formed to support and promote the United States Lavender industry.
The USLGA allows a collective voice for lavender growers in the U.S. It supports lavender farms, connect growers to buyers and provide continual education for both lavender growers and lavender users.
