Kelly MarshallAgGateway, Events

aggateway-2016This year’s AgGateway Conference is being held at the Renaissance Orlando at Sea World, Orlando, Florida on November 7-10.  The program will focus on business and technological aspects of eConnectivity.  Attendees can expect interactive, technical sessions; a business track; general sessions; networking; and productivity and customer service through eConnectivity.  Early bird registration ends October 14.

The conference is expected to draw hundreds of business and IT professionals from across the ag industry to discuss ongoing activities and the latest resources in implementing eConnectivity between agricultural trading partners. The conference features great opportunities to network and advance eConnectivity in agriculture – in ag retail, crop protection, crop nutrition, seed, grain, feed, precision ag, specialty chemical, and more.

The new “business track” of sessions will explore value and return-on-investment (ROI) decisions involved in adopting the ADAPT conversion toolkit (interoperability in precision ag); adoption of new precision ag irrigation standards, and the value and ROI connected with data security and compliance. Other sessions of business interest include an Auto Identification Data Capture (AIDC)/barcoding forum, the AgGateway Global Network update, and education sessions on AgGateway eConnectivity resources and how to use them.

Speakers for the connference include Brad Keywell, CEO of Uptake; Todd Janzen, Janzen Agricultural Law; and Robert Blair, famers and Vice President of Agriculture for Measure.

“The annual conference is the best opportunity of the year to see – and take part in – connectivity activities that are changing the way producers and their trading partners will do business in the years ahead, from making order-to-invoice processes more powerful and cost efficient, to advances in precision agriculture,” said AgGateway President and CEO Wendy Smith. “It’s an ideal forum to bring colleagues and trading partners to learn about the substantial benefits ag companies are gaining through eConnectivity.”
