EREC Conference Center
University of Florida's IFAS Everglades REC new conference center was funded by a challenge grant from the Sugar Cane Grower's Cooperative of Florida, matched by general revenue funding from the University of Florida.
The center is located next to the Wedgworth Laboratory Building on the EREC campus. It serves as a multi-purpose facility which provides three meeting rooms that open for use as one large conference room. The center allows the hosting of agricultural community functions, educational programs, meetings, and conferences that attract a large number of participants, both locally and from around the world. State-of-the-art audio and visual presentation equipment is available.
The EREC Friday Seminar Series have been a part of our conference center schedule since September, 2001. These sessions are designed to share information with our agricultural community about specific projects our research and extension faculty have been or are currently involved with. A schedule of the speakers and presentation topics will be available on the Web before the series starts.
