Thousands of people in the ag business are in San Diego this week for the United Fresh 2013 conference. About 1500 conference attendees gathered on the USS Midway Tuesday evening for a bit of socializing before the two day produce-industry conference.

The United Fresh conference features a number of workshops on topics like food safety, immigration reform and new transportation regulations. Women in produce will be honored with special reception, and conference attendees can also visit the tradeshow floor with hundreds of exhibitors.

It runs through Thursday, with special post-conference workshops on Friday.
