The Annual Conference for AgGateway will be the kickoff to celebrate the program’s 10th anniversary. The conference, scheduled for November 9-12 in San Antonio, Texas, will feature the growth of agricultural eBusiness and will include the adoption of “eAgriculture” as a term to signify the growth of electronic connectivity in the world of ag. A logo has also been designed to reflect the eAgriculture term, which members will be able to use to identify their use of AgGateway resources.
Additionally the conference will be highlighting an Innovation Showcase to feature new eAgriculture each year, as well as an “AgGateway in Action” award to recognize contributions in advancing eAg. The conference will also work to equip attendees with the resources to implement eBusiness in their own companies.
“We invite any and all ag companies interested in eBusiness to attend the conference to learn more about how AgGateway members in various areas are working together to improve the way agriculture works – from precision agriculture and auto identification data capture, to standardized reporting in ag retail and commodity transport,” said AgGateway President and CEO Wendy Smith. “The conference is our springboard for several new initiatives – including our use of the new term ‘eAgriculture’ to signify that these efforts move beyond back-office, accounting functions associated with the term ‘eBusiness’ to every aspect of agriculture – from the manufacturer and ag retailer to the field and beyond.”
