The 2013 InfoAg Conference was a bellwether event for precision agriculture, drawing more than 1,100 attendees from across the country and generating tremendous excitement about the future of technology in agriculture.
Now, precision ag practitioners and integrators don’t have to wait two years for the next InfoAg Conference. In 2014, the event returns as an annual meeting, and at a new venue. The 2014 InfoAg Conference will be held July 29-31 at the newly renovated Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, MO.
Registration is now available at the conference website.
InfoAg is the premier conference on precision ag technology and its practical applications, and draws a wide range of agriculture professionals including crop advisers, farmers, ag retailers, ag services, state and federal agents, researchers, Extension and others. InfoAg attendees will learn about the latest technologies in agriculture, and how these technologies are being put to use in production ag.
The InfoAg format features multiple concurrent speaker sessions providing a wide range of topics covering all points of view along the management spectrum, from high-level discussions among key executives to boots-on-the-ground decisions in producing a crop. InfoAg’s program format provides a key ingredient in the conference’s success. To view the complete 2014 program lineup, click here.
“We offer a blended program hitting on key aspects of precision ag,” says Dr. Steve Phillips of the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI), which hosts the conference. “That program attracts participants from all aspects of the industry, which builds on InfoAg’s strength as a networking tool for participants, speakers, exhibitors and sponsors.”
“The conference provides the ideal environment for meeting the players who are shaping the industry,” says Quentin Rund, conference secretary. “Sharing ideas and talking with others who are facing the same questions or providing answers is the spirit of the conference.” This year, the program will offer four concurrent sessions with each speaker getting plenty of time to cover their points in-depth and allow time for questions.”
Phillips adds: “We build the program to meet a variety of needs. We hit the hot topics in the industry. We invite speakers who set the stage for the future uses of tomorrow’s tools. But we also want to be sure we provide examples of how to put the technology into practice. By featuring retailers, crop consultants and farmers who are actively using information, tools and technology in their operation, we set InfoAg apart by connecting the dots throughout the industry.”
The program also allows for plenty of time for networking. Breaks, lunches and evening
receptions will be in the expanded exhibit hall. This gives participants opportunity to follow up
with speakers, meet other attendees and see the latest products and services from the world’s leading precision ag vendors.
The PrecisionAg Institute, an initiative of CropLife Media Group, will once again serve as the exclusive ag retail media partner and sponsor of the exhibit hall, the PrecisionAg Tech Center.
“We are pleased to once again partner with IPNI on this important technology conference,” says Paul Schrimpf, manager of the PrecisionAg Institute and group editor of the CropLife Media Group. “The ag technology learning and networking opportunities are unmatched at any conference in the country.”
The PrecisionAg Tech Center, which has already sold out, features 100 booths and will host all food and beverage functions. To get on a waiting list for exhibit space email Dan Bellanger.
