Learn about the policies and perspectives that will affect your farm or agribusiness and gain deep insight into the trends and realities impacting food production at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s 101st Annual Convention & Trade Show, Jan. 17-22, 2020, in Austin, Texas.
With a focus on AFBF’s theme for the year, 2020 Vision: Sustaining America’s Agriculture, Annual Convention will bring thousands of farmers and ranchers from around the country together to hear from powerful speakers on subjects ranging from trade, broadband and the farm economy to business development, consumer engagement and technology. Advocacy and member engagement and development will also be featured topics.
The Trade Show provides hands-on access to innovative products and services from highly regarded industry leaders. At the Cultivation Center, on the Trade Show floor, Annual Convention attendees can enjoy TED-style talks as well as hear the Farm Bureau Ag Innovation Challenge finalists pitch live to the Challenge judges.
“AFBF’s Annual Convention also offers Farm Bureau members from across the country a unique opportunity to network,” said John Hawkins, managing director of conventions and operations for AFBF. “Whether sparked by an idea shared by a workshop speaker or a product from a Trade Show exhibitor, the conversations farmers and ranchers have at Annual Convention help form and cement strong bonds that, along with the exciting programing offered, bring attendees back year after year.”
