Do you like saving money? Yeah, us too! If you know you’re going to CiderCon 2022, coming up in the not-too-distant future (February 1-4) in Richmond, Virginia, why not register now and save some cash?
Every year, the American Cider Association has a window open for early-bird tickets to its esteemed annual convention, which allows its hard-working members to grab tickets and make arrangements with a nice built-in discount. This year, with an eye toward how hard everyone in the industry is hustling, the ACA has kindly extended the early-bird pricing an extra 11 days, until October 31, 2021. This means you can lock in a registration fee of $395 for you and anyone on your team who’s coming along.
Once November rolls around, the pricing structure changes to the regular registration fee of $435 per person until January 20; late registration is $475 from January 21 until February 1; and on-site registration is $500 per person. So it only makes sense to stop procrastinating, register sooner than later, and save up to $105!
Just a few reminders why CiderCon is going to be extra-awesome this year:
- The conference is back in person! Last year’s all-virtual conference was a feat of organization and technology, but there’s nothing quite like being all together!
- The keynote speaker is Diane Flynt, who is pretty much a cidermaking legend.
- There are eight workshop tracks, this year which include: Cidermaking, Apples & Orcharding, Sales & Distribution, Better Business, Flavor & Terroir, Legal & Compliance, Marketing & Trends and History. The workshop leaders and panel moderators are always amazing and so informative.
- The tasting sessions this year are going to be so good! “Tasting and Terroir of True Crabs Non-Malus Domestica Apples” with Dan Pucci; “Introductory Palate Training” with Darlene Hayes; and “Wild, Clean & Free: Harnessing the Beauty of Wild-fermenting, Without the Flaws” with Christine Walter, Head Cidermaker of Bauman’s Cider, are just a few sessions to choose from!
- There are four can’t-miss tours this year to explore the beautiful region around Richmond, VA: the Albemarle County Tour, Nelson County Tour, Richmond’s Jackson Ward Tour, and an overnight tour of the Northern Shenandoah Valley.
- The famous CiderCon trade show is your one-stop shop to meet the vendors who help support the cider industry!
