Early registrants receive a significant registration discount.
In addition to general sessions, educational and working sessions, and networking events, the meeting features recognition of individual and group efforts that are moving the industry forward in eBusiness.

Sellers, Senior Vice President of Legislative and Regulatory Affairs for the American Feed Industry Association.
"This is a great opportunity to learn about and take part in the many exciting activities AgGateway members are involved in to make eBusiness possible - from auto identification data capture and better business office processes to regulatory compliance and precision agriculture." said AgGateway President and CEO Wendy Smith, "The annual conference is the best meeting of the year to bring colleagues and trading partners to learn about the substantial benefits companies are gaining through eBusiness."
The program is especially geared to ag retailers, distributors, manufacturers of ag inputs (e.g., seed, crop nutrition, crop protection), and software and data service providers, as well as professionals in precision ag, academia, agricultural organizations, ag media and students interested in eBusiness developments.
