Registration has opened for the 2019 Cheese Industry Conference, set for April 17-18 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison.

Co-hosted by Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association and the Center for Dairy Research, the conference features seminars, networking events and a tabletop exhibition hall.

New in 2019, WCMA will offer its dairy processing and manufacturing members access to exhibits for a special price. This offer also includes Ideas Showcase presentations, lunch and admission to the Chr. Hansen Championship Cheese Auction evening reception. All other attendees may take advantage of an “early bird” rate of 20 percent off now through Jan. 21 on CheeseConference.org.

More than 90 percent of 2019 conference’s tabletop exhibit spaces have already been claimed, and a list of exhibitors and the show floor plan are available at CheeseConference.org. Remaining spaces will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, contact WCMA Events Manager Caitlin Peirick at cpeirick@wischeesemakers.org.
