PMA Fresh Connections: Mexico

More than 400 participants gathered at the Poliforum in León, Guanajuato for the 11th annual PMA Fresh Connections: Mexico conference and expo. With an impressive lineup of international speakers, covering hot topics, and a full exposition floor – a true unparalleled networking experience.

Center for Growing Talent

The Center for Growing Talent (CGT) hosted a Career Pathways program for the first time in Mexico. Career Pathways is designed to inform top university students about potential careers in the fresh produce and floral industry. The pilot program in Mexico followed a model that CGT has used for 15 years to attract the best and brightest university students to the industry in several other countries around the world. One professor and 10 students from the University of Guanajuato participated in the Career Pathways pilot program, and they attended several events at the conference.

Also, CGT once again hosted a Young Professionals Networking Coffee Hour to start the conference. Geared toward produce professionals 35 and younger, participants started their day on May 23 meeting peers and expanding their networks.
