We’re excited to invite you to the 2023 Farm Futures Business Summit, to be held Jan. 19-20 at the Hyatt Regency Coralville Hotel and Conference Center just outside Iowa City, Iowa.

While we’re thrilled to have a packed speaker agenda ready to go, one of the biggest benefits of this meeting is seeing each other face to face. When we asked one of our summit speakers why networking is so important, he responded, “My behavior changes when I’m physically in front of someone. I’m more engaged and less distracted.”

Summit attendees get to exchange ideas with each other and our presenters, which include ag economists Brian Briggeman and David Kohl, farmer and philanthropist Howard Buffett, Iowa farmer and business consultant Jolene Brown, and Canadian futurist and serial entrepreneur Rob Saik.

Maybe even more important, you’ll plug in to stories from other farmers from across the Midwest, with two important panel discussions: “The Habits of Frugal Farmers,” and “Managing Farm, Family, and Leadership.”

This event includes Slido, an interactive real-time tech platform that enables easy audience interaction.  Attendees pose anonymous questions to speakers to make each session a more personal experience.

This energy-packed event gives farmers good information and ideas you can put to use today. It’s a chance to share solutions to common problems and discover better ways to manage your farm.

Someone once said, all great things happen in our life because of an encounter with another person. It’s these encounters that change the way you think about something, or the way you approach solving a problem. These are the positive benefits of reconnecting at the summit. You’ll make new friends who are as passionate about farming as you are. You’ll learn first-hand what works and what doesn’t from cross-table conversations.

That networking opportunity has been sorely missed in the past few years. We’re counting on a chance to catch up with each other and learn a few new things at the same time. Just go to this page to get registered and nail down your hotel reservations. Check out the full agenda for the summit as well as the one-day Ag Finance Boot Camp that takes place at the same venue a day earlier.

See you in Iowa!
