In the wake of record market volatility and farm profits, Top Producer Seminar is the perfect place to gather with other top performing producers to discuss marketing, management and money.
Top Producer Editor Jeanne Bernick would like to personally invite you to attend this year’s Top Producer Seminar. It will be held Feb. 1-3, 2012 in Chicago, Ill.
This year’s seminar will feature an industry-wide roundtable discussion on our nation’s farming infrastructure situation, from roads to river shipping to storage. This exclusive roundtable will include some of the nation’s top thought leaders on the subject of grain transportation and how it affects producers at the farm level.
We promise you’ll learn more from the best agribusiness minds in three short days in Chicago than from any other seminar all year.
Come hear from new faces as well as some of your favorite speakers, including:
- Wall Street analyst Ann Duignan
- Financial market analyst Vincent Malanga
- Texas A&M economist Danny Klinefelter
The 2012 event will be held at the beautiful Hilton Chicago, downtown on Michigan Avenue. Don’t miss our annual Top Producer of the Year Award banquet, held Thursday evening in the Hilton’s historic ballroom.
