Study Trip to Germany on Consumer Engagement and visit to the EuroTier tradeshow

November 11-16, 2018 | Germany

Our Consumer Engagement program fosters discussion of best practices for engaging consumers and addressing the public’s questions about food production.

This study trip will bring US farmers together with their counterparts in Germany for a series of discussions and farm visits. Participation will also include AgChat Germany's World AgVocate Meeting and VIP access to the EuroTier 2018 -- the world's leading trade fair for animal production. The show will highlight technologies for successfully combining productivity and animal welfare, as well as information management.

Meet with relevant German agricultural associations and government institutions to learn about supporting regulations and the current legal status. Experience German culture, hospitality and cuisine, before you return home from a trip of a lifetime with valuable insights for your own business!
