The National Mango Board has scheduled a series of quarterly Web seminars to discuss the industryâs 2010 marketing and research programs.
The first one, scheduled for March 3, is called âLetâs Talk Mango,â where industry officials plan to release details about the boardâs marketing and research results.
In past years, the board sponsored similar meetings in New York, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Miami, McAllen, Texas, and Nogales, Ariz.
The board changed to Internet meetings to increase industry participation and interaction and save on travel costs, according to a news release.
âWe realize this is a big change, but we think the mango industry is ready to embrace the technology thatâs available and help us be more efficient,â William Watson, the boardâs executive director said in the release.
Other seminars are scheduled to discuss the industryâs quality initiatives, results from a nutrition research campaign and promoting mangoes through retail and foodservice segments.
To register for the free seminars, visit the mango board Web site or contact the boardâs Marilda Peele at firstname.lastname@example.org or 407-629-7318, extension 106.
