Are You California Bound in April? By Tim Hodson

Are you planning to attend California Spring Trials next month?

California Spring Trials will take place April 14-19, at 15 different locations throughout California. Nearly 70 breeding companies and other suppliers are participating in the Trials this year. 

To help attendees plan for Spring Trials, every year we publish our California Spring Trials Companion. The Companion is filled with all of the information you need to help guide you on your trip.

In the Companion, you will find all of the trial location addresses, contact names, phone numbers and email addresses to ensure you make it to each stop. We’ve also included some restaurant recommendations along the way so you can charge your batteries and stay nourished.

This year’s California Spring Trials Companion also has a few sneak peeks of some of the new introductions that the breeding companies plan to display in April.

To access GPN’s 2018 California Spring Trials Companion just click here.

Jasmina Dolce, GPN’s managing editor, also has been providing additional Spring Trials sneak peeks in her Culture Connection e-newsletter. If you missed her first two newsletters, just click on the links below:

Jasmina also will be providing daily updates in the Culture Connection as the GPN team travels through California. You won’t want to miss her reports from the road.

If you are not currently receiving the Culture Connection e-newsletter, just go to and fill out the form.

California Spring Trials is almost here. Are you ready?
