How is this week different than other conferences or events?
While there are many events happening across the country and in Minnesota, what makes Food, Ag, Ideas Week unique is its diversity of topics and perspectives from across food and agriculture. We are bringing together corporate, non-profit, and civic leaders across industry leading topics within sustainable agriculture, food innovation, and tech and food and society. We see Food, Ag, Ideas Week, not just an event, but as a platform to catalyze connectivity and engagement with our community.
Why are you charging for tickets? Why are ticket prices so low?
Why are you offering individual tickets for each event vs one ticket for the entire week?
Grow North wanted to make Food, Ag, Ideas Week as accessible as possible, and that includes reducing barriers to access. We understand that for many people taking multiple days off of work can be a challenge as well as committing to a lump sum price. In order to better accommodate our attendees, we offer individual or multi-day in addition to the weeklong pass at approachable price points. In order to change our food system, we want to bring inspirational and educational content to the leaders doing the work.
