The OTA Calendar is full of events that are either organized or attended by OTA. We are pleased to organize and support dozens of events that advance organic agriculture and trade throughout the year. Some of these are signature OTA events hosted for members, while others are regional, national, or international conferences where OTA staff are featured keynotes and panelists. Whether we’re bringing the latest news and trends about the organic industry to diverse audiences, sponsoring business networking gatherings, or hosting listening sessions to gather feedback from the sector, you can count on OTA to be part of the action.

Organic Week in Washington, D.C.

Organic Week in Washington, D.C.

Monday, May 20, 2019 - 9:00am to Thursday, May 23, 2019 - 3:00pm

Experience the impact of organic – three great events in one powerful week.

It’s time to double-down on big ideas and better solutions. In the backdrop of the nation’s capital, join us at the epicenter of culinary creativity for a collaborative event about the future of organic. We’ll explore leading-edge thinking, discuss bold strategies, and take incremental steps to advance policy and private sector solutions.

The Organic Trade Association kicks off Organic Week in Washington, D.C. with Member Day on Monday, May 20, at our headquarters in the Hall of The States. On Tuesday, May 21, we will head to Capitol Hill for Advocacy Day to educate the nation’s top policymakers on the importance of organic. The week's activities will culminate with Conference Day in a unique new venue – Dock 5 – a creative urban space in the nexus of the bustling, historic Union Market. There, we will focus on bold ideas and critical conversations of consequence to our industry.

Small organic producers to major growers, family-run organic operations to nationwide companies, researchers and policy advocates to distributors and retailers will come together to advance organic priorities. You can’t afford to miss this intimate offering of education, advocacy, and networking brought to you by the Organic Trade Association.

Register now, or learn more about sponsorship opportunities. We hope to see you there!
