The 2021 Alltech ONE Ideas Conference opened its virtual doors Tuesday to officially welcome more than 10,000 attendees from around the world for an exploration of agri-food, business and beyond.
Now in its 37th year, Alltech’s flagship event continues to be an invaluable industry resource, with unmatched content and innovative ideas, inspiration and motivation from world-class speakers. Registrants from 99 countries have access to a virtual platform that includes on-demand tracks, streaming keynote presentations, live workshops and an interactive networking experience, allowing attendees to connect around the world.
“We are on the brink of a new beginning, and I don’t believe that is just a new beginning for Alltech. I think it’s a new beginning and a new golden era for agri-food, and it’s led by what we believe is a bold vision,” said Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech, in his opening remarks. “We want to deliver smarter, more sustainable solutions for our customers and for all of agri-food.”
The program got off to a great start with Anna Rosling Rönnlund, vice president and head of design and user experience at Gapminder and co-author of “Factfulness,” who designed the user interface of the famous animated bubble-chart tool Trendalyzer for better understanding global development trends. She was followed by professional photographer, filmmaker and former photojournalist for National Geographic, Dewitt Jones, who has made a career of storytelling through images and has traveled the world on a mission to find the extraordinary in the ordinary. Both of their presentations and much more is available now on-demand for ONE registrants.
ONE was delayed by a month to finish the final tweaks in the custom built platform for the virtual event, but Dr. Lyons says it was important for them to make sure they got it just right.
