Grapegrowing Technical Exhibits Tours
Space is limited to 25 attendees per tour. Registration for tours will be onsite only, located in the designated room from where tours will start, 30 minutes before each tour begins. Enrollment onsite is on a first-come, first-served basis. However, only two representatives per company may enroll in the same tour. Selecting a tour during the registration process does not guarantee enrollment. You must be one of the first 25 attendees to show up in the designated room on-site for each tour.
Labor availability is a huge concern for our industry. Innovative growers and manufacturers are developing equipment and cultural practices to increase efficiency while maintaining or improving yield and fruit/wine composition. An important component of these efforts is to manage as many operations as possible in mature vineyards using equipment to reduce the number of “touches” required by labor. This exhibit hall tour will visit some of these innovators and inspire you to become creative with mechanization and vineyard cultural practices to maximize your labor availability.
