Your Full Service Conference Planning Team

100th Anniversary of UF/IFAS Extension


Congratulations UF/IFAS Extension on 100 successful years of developing knowledge in agriculture, human and natural resources, and the life sciences, and enhancing and sustaining the quality of human life!


Planning a conference is challenging.

That’s where we come in. . .


OCI is a full service conference planning agency at the University of Florida. OCI was created to support the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) mission to develop knowledge in agriculture, human and natural resources, 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.
