Agriculture Industry and Business Organizations Are Sponsoring the Candidate Summit Before the Annual Lay of the Land Conference
LAKELAND, FL, March 27, 2018 — On Thursday, April 5, candidates for Florida Governor and Commissioner of Agriculture will speak at an event sponsored by Coldwell Banker Commercial Saunders Real Estate and a group of Florida business and agriculture industry organizations. The Candidate Summit will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 2:15 p.m. at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate near Orlando.
“We wanted to provide an opportunity for guests of our annual land conference and others to hear from the candidates,” said Dean Saunders, founder and broker of CBCSRE. “A dozen organizations worked with us to create this opportunity because they know the important role policy plays in the economic vitality of Florida’s land and agriculture markets.”
The candidates will speak individually on topics related to Florida land and agriculture. The Lay of the Land Conference will begin immediately after the Candidate Summit and continue through Friday, April 6. The conference is an annual gathering of landowners, policymakers, investors and other industry affiliates which features a report of current Florida land market data.
Gubernatorial candidates invited include Ron DeSantis, Gwen Graham, Philip Levine and Adam Putnam. DeSantis and Putnam have confirmed their attendance. Agriculture Commissioner candidates confirmed include Matt Caldwell, Sen. Denise Grimsley and Baxter Troutman.
