Annual Convention Wrap Up

This past January, nearly 6,000 of America’s farmers and ranchers arrived at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Arizona, for the IDEAg Trade Show and 98th Annual Convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation.

The trade show floor, with more than 100 exhibitors, featured education on the IDEAg Cultivation Center stage, a Celebration of Grassroots reception, the Taste of America lunch event and some of the best agribusinesses from across the country.

The Celebration of Grassroots reception, held on Saturday, January 7, featured a supply chain forum with executives from General Mills, Inc., DuPont, and John Deere. 

Wrapping up the trade show, the Taste of America lunch event, featuring food from each region of the country, was well-received by attendees. Food from each region was placed among the exhibitors’ booths.

And to finish off the convention, Peyton & Archie Manning spoke to attendees about family, their careers, and football.

We look forward to seeing everyone again in 2018 in Nashville, TN!
