The convention will be held in-person Jan. 7-12, 2022, in Atlanta, Georgia, with a virtual option for portions of the event available to those not attending in-person.
“People, Purpose, Possibilities – Growing Tomorrow, Together” is the theme of AFBF’s 103rd consecutive convention, a “can’t miss” event that offers the inside scoop on policies and perspectives that will affect farms, ranches and agribusinesses in 2022 and beyond.
“This is your chance to look beyond the horizon at the future of agriculture, sharpen your skills and help set the agenda in Washington,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “I look forward to seeing you in January in my home state of Georgia as we begin another year of growing together.”
Attendees may participate in educational workshops to advance their leadership skills, expand business acumen and gain insight into the policies and trends impacting food production. The convention also offers the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge innovations in agriculture, hear from powerful speakers and explore a dynamic trade show with exhibitors showcasing the latest in agricultural technology, tools and services.
