One of the greatest benefits to attending a NAMA convention is networking with your peers. In between meetings, the trade show, meals or just about anytime, you’ll see agrimarketing professionals talking. This benefit alone makes attending the convention a must for anyone who’s serious about their profession.
The NAMA Convention student lunch was crowded. At the conclusion of the luncheon the quarterfinalists were announced for their marketing competition. Those are already underway this afternoon.
Another ARC Spring Fling note from Carroll Merry.
Prior to the start of the NAMA Convention, the Agricultural Relations Council held a day long meeting here at the Hyatt.
The Trade Show will be well guarded but I still didn’t leave my notebook computer at my booth.
It didn’t take long but ZimmComm is set up and ready for trade show action here at the 2005 Agri-Marketing Conference & Trade Show.
We’re set up right across from the NAFB booth and at the center of the action. The floor in front of us will contain a display this afternoon of the Best of NAMA award entries. The winners will be announced this evening and we’ll post results when we can.
Let the games begin! Actually, the games began earlier today for the golfers. I wanted to but that extra day and $’s just didn’t work out this year. Maybe next year.
The first stop is always registration.
This is just a quick tease to stay tuned for numerous posts from the 2005 Agri-Marketing Conference & Trade Show.
I’ve spoken with a number of people who won’t be able to attend next week’s 2005 Agri-Marketing Conference & Trade Show. For them, NAMA has the next best thing.
