Taylor HillmanAlmond Update, General

Plans are well underway for the annual almond conference and one of the big events each year is the gala dinner. Almond Board Program Coordinator, Industry Relations, Rebecca Bailey tells us more about the dinner.

Listen to the report:

Mark your calendars and buy your tickets! “The Futurist” Adam Trent will wow attendees with his skill, personality and humor at the 45th annual Almond Conference Gala Dinner.
Trent is a pivotal member of the best-selling magic show in Broadway history, “The Illusionists,” which sold $2.1 million in one week followed by a smash-hit U.S. and world tour. His headline illusion show is said to have mass appeal not seen since the touring days of David Copperfield.
Returning to his roots as a solo headliner, “The Futurist” will bring his best acts from the Broadway show along with never-before seen material. Trent’s performance promises to be an immersive entertainment extravaganza of magic, comedy and music that’s perfect for the entire audience. According to the New York Theater Guide, Adam Trent is “so amazing, it’s hard to put into words. Your eyes will deceive you, your heartbeat will race, and your mind will be blown!”
Trent has frequent TV appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The Today Show” and countless others, along with his own 10-episode TV series which premiered May 2017 on Red Bull TV.
The Almond Conference takes place December 5-7, 2017 at the Sacramento Convention Center. Tickets for the gala dinner are $85 per person and can be purchased by visiting
