WASHINGTON, D.C. – United Fresh Produce Association has announced the member-exclusive SmartPass Education Package for 2021. The package offers members access to multiple events through the year with the convenience of a single registration.
“Our SmartPass Education Package is designed to help both companies and individuals plan their engagement with United Fresh’s 2021 education and networking activities,” said United Fresh Vice President of Education & Program Management Amanda Griffin. “Companies can buy SmartPass packages and send different team members to different events.
