About OCI

OCI is a full service conference planning agency at the University of Florida. We were created to support the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) mission to develop knowledge in agriculture, human and natural resources, and the life sciences, and to make that knowledge available to people to sustain and enhance the quality of life. Conferences have proven an effective tool for disseminating and sharing this wealth of knowledge, and OCI conducts a variety of workshops, conferences and symposia in support of the IFAS mission. Contact us to find out how our team of trained meeting professionals can help you plan your next conference.
