WEEK AT A GLANCE

Food I Ag I Ideas Week features six days of speakers, events, tours, and demo showcases hosted in inspiring spaces with a build-your-own schedule format. This year, sessions are designed to offer perspectives from a cross-section of the ecosystem from startups to Fortune 500 companies.

 

We are breaking the traditional conference model by offering individually ticketed events and sessions at low or no-cost through the generous support of our partners. Read more about how it works
