The Pistachio Industry Annual Conference presented by American Pistachio Growers is the largest gathering for growers and pistachio industry leaders, drawing attendees for three power-packed days of networking, education and community. This is where new products are shared, new relationships are forged and friendships are cultivated.


JOSH ALLEN | Tuesday, March 1 • 9:45 am

The Buffalo Bills just sealed a six-year extension deal with quarterback Josh Allen and he intends to win some Championships. During their spectacular 2020 season he led the franchise to the AFC Championship Game, breaking several single-season club passing records along the way, and finishing runner-up for AP NFL Most Valuable Player. And now, he can add Grower to his resume, as he and his family are farming pistachios in their hometown of Firebaugh. This year’s APG Marketing Presentation will feature Josh and Dr. Mike Roussell in a discussion so fun you might want to join the #BillsMafia.

CAPTAIN SCOTT KELLY | Wednesday, March 2 • 11:00 am

A true American hero, astronaut Scott Kelly is an engineer, naval aviator and veteran of four space flights. Kelly commanded the International Space Station on three expeditions and is the only American to have spent a year in space. You won’t want to miss his talk as he shares his experiences with our growers. Turns out, the sky is not the limit.



POLYNESIAN LUAU – PISTACHIO STYLE! | Wednesday, March 2 • 6:00 pm

Follow the beating drums and be greeted by natives at the pistachio industry’s biggest celebration ever. Party like a Polynesian at the luau with kau-kau fit for King Kamehameha. Catch the best entertainment on the island and dancing under the new moon. Prizes will be awarded for the best island style (ahu), and other surprises, so meet us at the Tiki Bar and let’s toast to aloha!



As we look forward to the APG Annual Conference in February 2022, we want to provide prospective attendees with information regarding the potential rules and precautions that will (or may) apply at the Annual Conference.

We do not know the exact health and safety protocols that will be required by local, state or federal authorities in February due to the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic, but want to make you aware that the APG Annual Conference will follow required laws and regulations in place at that time.  Guidelines for events of our size are subject to change and we recommend that you visit our Annual Conference website frequently as we will update you prior to February regarding the safety protocols that will be in place for the Annual Conference.

We are excited to host the 2022 APG Annual Conference and we look forward to seeing you there!
