2019 AFBF Annual Convention Sponsorship Opportunities

Start your year with the American Farm Bureau Federation® (AFBF), the nation’s largest general agriculture organization, where U.S. farmers and ranchers from all 50 states and Puerto Rico come together to set the 2019 U.S. agriculture policy agenda.

Since 1919, U.S. agriculture leaders from across the country have come together to discuss solutions to issues affecting U.S. farmers, ranchers and rural Americans, engage in leadership development and educational opportunities, compete in events to advance their businesses, and network with agriculture industry leaders.

This January, join us in New Orleans to celebrate our centennial year as the voice of U.S. farmers and ranchers and engage with Farm Bureau members from across the country. Your support strengthens Farm Bureau’s ability to advocate as the voice of U.S. agriculture, develop leaders, support rural communities and rebuild trust between consumers and the people who proudly produce their food, fiber and energy.

Exhibitor Scam Warning

AFBF & IDEAg have been notified of several scams regarding attendee lists and hotel reservations. The IDEAg Group does not work with any company claiming to have the attendee lists, and the only company who is authorized to book housing is Experient.

If you receive a communication from anyone other than show management, please disregard! These companies do not have a list of our attendees, their contact information or hotel information, and will not be able to provide you with a service once they have your money.

 Housing and registration will open in October, and exhibitors will be notified once housing becomes available.

We at AFBF & IDEAg Group are always looking to protect our customers. Please be alert and if you have any questions about the validity of a communication you've received, contact us at ideag@ideaggroup.com.
