The symposium kicks off Monday evening, Feb. 17, with a networking social. A wide range of educational sessions dedicated to production and marketing run from Tuesday morning, Feb. 18, through Wednesday, Feb. 19, at 4 p.m.
"We're bringing in some of the country's 'big dogs' to share their insight and knowledge," states Kurt Barth, Brock Associates' chief financial officer and marketing consultant.
This year's symposium features more sessions than ever before and is the ideal place to gather innovative ideas, learn from and network with some of the best agribusiness minds in the industry and pick the brains of like-minded progressive, business-savvy growers from across the country.
The symposium is great place to relax, learn and interact with others dedicated to farming.
The symposium offers ample time to network, including Tuesday evening's dinner jazz cruise down the Mississippi. Individuals having an extra day are welcome to join the post-symposium tours: a carriage ride through historic New Orleans and an afternoon swamp tour.
