New Uses Forum 2018: Adding Value at the Speed of Innovation 

Join us on April 11 and 12, 2018, at the Crowne Plaza in Plymouth, MN for a pre-event reception (4/11) and an informative day of learning about value-added agriculture in Minnesota while networking with others with new ideas and successful entrepreneurial ventures (4/12).

The theme, “Adding Value at the Speed of Innovation” will focus on how rapidly the value-added agricultural sector changes with the commercialization of new innovations. The forum brings together knowledgeable guest speakers from throughout the new uses and value-added agricultural sectors. Keynote speakers will share trends and industry overviews of these sectors, while  panels will give more detailed overviews as well as insight into their respective organizations’ experiences.

The forum will, once again, be a premiere value-added agricultural event for the upper Midwest, so be sure to register today! The registration cost will be $75, which covers both receptions, a lunch, a continental breakfast and networking breaks. 

If you or your organization is interested in sponsoring the event or promoting your company with a vendor table, please email Nan Larson at nlarson@auri.org.
