Registration is now open for AgGateway's 2013 Mid-Year Meeting, to be held June 17-20 at the John Deere Financial Facility in Johnston, Iowa. At the meeting, AgGateway councils, committees and working groups will move forward on valuable efforts to promote, enable and expand e-business in agriculture. These efforts will help implement supply chain efficiencies in such sectors as precision agriculture, seed, grain, feed, crop nutrition and crop protection, as well as for agriculture retail companies.

AgGateway is a nonprofit group made of agricultural business. There is no registration fee for the Mid-Year Meeting.

AgGateway has seen significant growth due to the success of member collaborations on e-connectivity projects. Membership has grown from 141 to 170 member companies in the past year alone.


"Members and non-members alike should attend to learn from others who are seeing the immense benefits of electronic connectivity between trading partners," said AgGateway CEO Rod Conner. "For our members, this is a great opportunity to strengthen business relationships by inviting colleagues and trading partners to help them determine how they could benefit from participation in AgGateway."

AgGateway encourages attendees to register and reserve their hotel rooms early, in order to ensure a place at the meeting and at the best hotel rate. A list of hotels with negotiated rates and reservation information is available on the Mid-Year Meeting Web page.
