Why should you attend? Here are just a few reasons.
- As a young producer, there’s no better place to develop your management skills than at Tomorrow's Top Producer. Our event features a deep bench of industry experts who will help you think critically and proactively about the future of your operation.
- Tired of sitting through slide after slide from speakers you’ve heard a hundred times? Our breakout sessions will get you engaged and involved. You’ll have access to the brightest minds in agriculture, including experts in commodity marketing, finance and landlord relationships.
- Take advantage of your time away from the farm to relax and mingle with industry peers from nearly 20 states.
- Our closing Summit speaker will give you a behind-the-scene look at an iconic company: WD-40. As CEO and a member of the board of directors, Garry Ridge is passionate about the learning and empowering organizational culture he has helped establish. His vision and leadership have positively impacted the WD-40 Company in both measurable and immeasurable ways.
- Top Producer will award its ninth Tomorrow's Top Producer Horizon Award winner. This award recognizes a producer under the age of 35. Not only will you meet this year’s recipient, but you’ll also be able to network with previous winners.
- Enjoy one of the Midwest’s top cities. Chicago is a beautiful event backdrop that offers award-winning dining, exciting nightlife and refreshing weather—it’s just an amazing place.
- Relax in the beautiful Hilton Chicago on Michigan Avenue, our home for the week. This historic hotel has housed every sitting U.S. president (minus President Donald Trump) since it opened in 1927. It has even been featured in movies and TV shows, such as “The Fugitive,” “ER” and “Empire.”
- Be inspired by a dynamic keynote speaker—Matt Mayberry. As a business professional and former NFL linebacker for the Chicago Bears, Matt has a real-world understanding that success is based on overcoming adversity, motivation, culture and teamwork.
- The best part of Top Producer collocating with our other events—Executive Women in Agriculture, Top Producer Seminar, Hemp Summit and the Legacy Conference—is you can maximize your team’s time. We’re offering discounted registration rates on multiple registrations for these four events.
