NFocus Forums for Agribusiness in August

NFocusMajor corn and soybean producers and agribusiness suppliers will convene this August for the NFocus Forums for Agribusiness.

“We are providing the opportunity for 30 to 40 large-acreage corn and soybean producers to meet in one-on-one private sessions with key suppliers,” says Kim Nicholson, managing partner of NFocus Partners, LLC. “With the number of producers farming 5,000 acres or more of corn or soybeans having grown four-fold in just the past 5 years, the purchasing dynamics and supplier needs for this producer group has changed dramatically. What makes the NFocus Forums for Agribusiness efficient is that it brings together key decision makers from both major producers and suppliers in an organized strategic setting.”

NFocus Partners is partnering with BeckAg to pre-screen forum participants. Suppliers will have the option of 10 to 15 meetings with producers who are matched to suppliers and their products and services. “Suppliers will have agendas and pre-call planning information well in advance of the meetings to allow for customized presentations for each producer,” says Stephanie Liska, president of BeckAg.

The NFocus Forums for Agribusiness will be held August 22-25, 2011, at Legacy Lodge, located at Lake Lanier Islands, Georgia. For more information, visit
