The 2017 Mid-Year Meeting was a success with a total of 167 attendees, three days of valuable content, including the Ag Retail Connectivity Seminar, and great participation from all the attendees. The meeting kicked off with a fireside chat from Matt Carstens, Director of SUSTAIN for WinField, and Teddy Bekele, CIO of Land O’Lakes, discussing big data and the focus on sustainability. The opening session related well to what is happening in the agriculture industry and was well-received by those in attendance.
Networking was an important part of the meeting for attendees from almost 50 different companies. With a networking lunch, two evening receptions, and multiple refreshment breaks, there was adequate time for what some consider the most important reason to attend the conference.
The Ag Retail Connectivity Seminar was also a hit among those who were able to attend. There was very positive feedback on the session held on Tuesday and great reviews about the speakers for each topic. See more information on this topic here.
