Country Elevator Conference

Country Elevator Conference

OVERVIEW

NGFA’s annual Country Elevator Conference & Trade Show is the single largest gathering of country elevator personnel, and is limited to NGFA members only. Check out who attended in 2013. (For more information on joining NGFA, email Todd Kemp or call 202-289-0873.)

Each year, more than 500 industry members attend the day-and-a-half conference and trade show. High-level government representatives and industry experts serve as speakers at this popular annual conference. Following the 2013 conference, Feedstuffs on Dec. 23, 2013 reported on a grain quality presentation in its article ”Sustaining grain quality in storage.”

Conducted in conjunction with the conference is an annual Leadership Conference with state and regional grain and feed associations affiliated with the NGFA, as well as a meeting of the NGFA’s Country Elevator Committee.
