Business Program

We are excited to offer a variety of presentations and interactive panels for the 24th North American Mushroom Conference. Our theme for the 24th NAMC is Growing By Historic Proportions and the global mushroom industry is doing just that! We will touch on trends and innovations that impact mushroom farming directly. There will be talks about sustainability and technology and how we can improve daily operations while limiting waste. And there will be two panels and a keynote that focus on the future of mushroom production employees and The Blend.

This information packed program will all be presented in beautiful Quebec City, Canada at the most photographed hotel in the world.

Don’t delay, register online today!
