This year's CSS & Seed Expo will immediately strike you as a reinvented experience when you arrive. After a year apart, ASTA is thrilled to bring our members and friends back together again and have a good time doing it!

Introducing....the new "Villages" of the CSS & Seed Expo!

This year, participants will have the chance to roam around our new "Villages," themed to the major segments of our conference sessions and exhibitors. Each village contains a session theatre, relevant exhibitors to those sessions, networking tables and lounges and our new "Food Truck" simulations - creating a new small plates food festival around the entire event. 

AND - in order to help celebrate the ability to get together again - each village will host a networking reception EVERY NIGHT during the conference.

"LEAD Village" includes a new session series on career development, management skills, and the new Seed Expo Lab Showcase. As such, exhibitors in this area feature labs, research firms, universities, ag organizations and the like.
