National Conference for Food and Agribusiness

November 6-7, 2019


Conference Overview

The National Conference for Food and Agribusiness brings together professionals from across the agri-food system to gain industry and business insights, network and discover solutions to today's challenges. The goal of the conference is to help agricultural and food businesses shape their organizations and customer interactions for optimal success.

The conference is held over two days. The first day is classroom and discussion, while the second day is workshops and active learning. Participants may opt to attend just day one or both days, but will ultimately gain the most benefit from attending both.

Save the Dates

The 2019 conference will be November 6-7 on Purdue University's West Lafayette campus. Information on content, speakers, and registration will be available soon.

Who should attend?

This conference serves all facets of the agri-food system, including crop and livestock inputs, equipment manufacturers and dealers, banking institutions, food processors, universities and more. Participants come from a wide range of professions, including agronomy, sales, marketing, management, market intelligence, executive positions and more.

We strongly encourage attendance in teams, as past participants have stated they see the greatest benefit when sharing the experience with colleagues. However, individuals are welcome too.

Benefits beyond research include access to the Center for Food and Agricultural Business economists and team. Networking with conference participants provides added value in contextualizing lessons through an applied lens focused on agriculture."
