After a two year hiatus due to (yes, you guessed it) Covid, the annual ECHO International Agricultural Conference will be held in person at their Fort Myers, FL campus. For three decades ECHO has been at the forefront of bringing cutting edge scientific knowledge to farmers around the world, and this conference is a wonderful opportunity to learn from some leading thinkers in the field and to meet people from many different areas who may be struggling with some of the same challenges you are.
Dates are 15-17 November, with an early bird registration of US$325 (goes up to US$400 after 31 August). Registration details are here. This is ECHO’s description of the event:
For twenty-eight years, ECHO has brought together networks of like-minded individuals devoted to eradicating hunger and improving lives through agriculture and community development. For the past two years, due to novel coronavirus, ECHO’s Annual Conference moved online. This year we are returning to our in-person event. We are thrilled to invite you to join us in Fort Myers, Florida on November 15th-17th to connect once again together on ECHO’s Florida Campus. The ECHO International Agriculture Conference will return with speakers addressing agricultural challenges, personal experiences, and strategies for improving the lives of millions who daily face food insecurity.
