NEW  this year at the ASHS Conference

 

Industry Ignite!

In business and in society in general, keeping pace with what’s happening now is no longer enough.

The true leaders in industry—the ones whose names you know—are the people who knew the answers to the question “What’s next?” before the rest of us did.

Industry Ignite! brings you the horticulture industry’s creative, critical thinkers who will present a series of 3-minute speed presentations on a topic of their choice, using one visual aid.

The goal of this event is to stir up interest and attention amongst the Society’s industry membership and highlight their involvements and accomplishments in horticulture. Moreover, the event fosters an opportunity for ASHS members to be introduced to industry presence at the conference, and to meet the industry participants whom they wouldn’t have otherwise encountered.

This is the highly anticipated industry event the horticulture world has been waiting for…. Time is limited to one hour – first come, first speak.

Industry participants must submit their slide by the deadline of July 26th. You can start your submission today to reserve your spot and upload your slide by the deadline.

Participants can use only ONE Presentation Slide, in the 16:9 format.   You may use any color, background or font for your Presentation Slide without any animation. The slide must be presented in 3 minutes. Once the presenter reaches the podium, the timer will start and after 3 minutes we will move to the next presenter.

You can talk about anything -- your company, your product, your research, yourself…

Make your three minutes count!

Make it fun!

Make it Ignite!

 

New Cultivars Ignite! - postponed until 2021

New cultivars are important to everyone from basic scientists to extension personnel working with growers, and of course our industry members and partners.  To highlight the exciting cultivars developed by our members, we are inviting the authors of new cultivar and germplasm releases published in HortScience during 2018 and 2019 to participate in the first annual New Cultivars Ignite! Event. 

Breeders are invited to present a series of 3-minute speed presentations describing their new cultivars using one visual aid.

The goal of this event is to publicize the new cultivars being released by our members and to encourage breeders to submit their new releases for publication in HortScience. While horticultural breeders also conduct other research on genetics and breeding strategies among other topics, our cultivar releases are our biggest opportunity to make a real difference in our industry! 

What makes your new cultivar unique, exciting, or useful to the horticulture industry? Please come share information about your new cultivars with your peers and our industry members and partners in this new session!

Participants must submit their slide by the deadline of July 26th.  You can start your submission today to reserve your spot and upload your slide by the deadline.  We invite collaborators or students familiar with the new cultivar to present in place of the inventor or first author of the HortScience release if he/she is not planning to attend the ASHS conference this summer.

Participants can use only ONE Presentation Slide, in the 16:9 format.  You may use any color, background or font for your Presentation Slide without any animation.  Please be sure to include the name of the cultivar or HortScience article title in size 44 font centered at the top of the slide and list the authors of the HortScience release and the presenting author along with the institution where the cultivar was developed somewhere on the slide.

The slide must be presented in 3 minutes. Once the presenter reaches the podium, the timer will start and after 3 minutes we will move to the next presenter. 

Make your three minutes count!

Make it fun!

Make it Ignite!
