Washington, D.C., March 29, 2017 – Registration is now open for AgGateway’s Mid-Year Meeting, June 12-15 at Prairie Meadows in Altoona, Iowa, just outside of Des Moines. The meeting provides valuable insights and networking for anyone seeking to expand eConnectivity in agriculture – from seasoned AgGateway members to ag professionals new to the organization. The working meeting provides multiple networking opportunities, as well as many open working group sessions where teams discuss ways to advance their collaborative initiatives.
“The AgGateway teams will discuss advances in grain traceability, interoperability for precision agriculture, efficiencies for the specialty chemical sector, resources for ag retailers, and much more,” said AgGateway President and CEO Wendy Smith. “We invite companies to learn and participate. There are huge benefits to the efficient and accurate exchange of information all along the agricultural supply chain.”
This year’s meeting also features a half-day Ag Retail eConnectivity Forum for senior retail managers and directors. The forum will present information on the value of a company’s investment in eConnectivity initiatives, particularly focused on the efficiencies and competitive advantages as retailers, manufacturers and distributors move to seamless electronic data exchange.
AgGateway has again set modest registration fees to encourage maximum participation in collaborative eConnectivity projects. Registration is just $150 for both members and non-members. In addition, those who register by Friday, April 27 will be entered into a drawing to win a special VIP attendee package, including a complimentary hotel room upgrade to a suite. The special hotel rate at Prairie Meadows available until May 22 is $107/night.
