Virtual Programming Available for AFBF Annual Convention

The American Farm Bureau’s annual meeting is January 7-12 in Atlanta. However, if your schedule doesn’t allow you to get to Georgia in time, Nikki Jones, Director of Events Marketing with IDEAg, talks about virtual attendance.

“Virtual convention attendees will get to experience most of the convention activities right along with the in-person attendees. There are ten of the educational sessions that are being live streamed on the virtual platform. Virtual attendees can catch topics such as Public Policy Town Hall, Influencing and Advocating Trade in American agriculture, or top issues facing agriculture from the ag media. Attendees can ask questions to the speakers via the chat function in the platform and have their questions answered live.”

“They can also experience the sights, sounds, and messages from the general session stage, cheer on their states in the competitions, and catch each of the three keynote addresses live also. Attendees can also check out the short Ted-style talk happening on the Cultivation Center Stage on the trade show floor. They can get information on topics such as H2A, livestock supply chain, and drought. To catch the full schedule of events, visit the annualconvention.fb.org website and find the live virtual convention under the Special Events and Experiences page on the website.”

Virtual events will still be available for a limited time after the convention ends.

“Most of the content is available for 90 days following the events, so, if an attendee is unable to catch a specific session live, they can go back and view it or take notes or rewatch topics of interest. Virtual only registration is $25, and the registration link can be found on the website at annual conventions.fb.org.”
