The 2021 American Seed Trade Association CSS & Seed Expo wrapped up Thursday with the announcement that the event will be held in a warmer location two years from now.

“In 2023 we are moving from the cold bridges of Chicago to the sunshine and palm trees of Florida,” said ASTA Senior Director, Meetings & Services, Jennifer Crouse.

The history of the original Corn & Sorghum Seed Research Conference being held in Chicago goes back more than 70 years, and the expo has been held at the Hyatt Regency Chicago for the past 37 years.

“We’ll be back here next year for the 38th year…and then the year after we end up at the Hyatt in Orlando,” said ASTA President and CEO Andy LaVigne in a wrap up interview from the event this week.

LaVigne says they were pleased with the way the 2021 CSS & Seed Expo turned out and it was just great to see everyone again. “We’ve got over 1700 member of the association here with us,” said LaVigne. “It was really a great success.”
