U.S. Ag Club expands to Europe; 2017 fall schedule announced (7.19.2017)

BOSTON (7/19/17) – HighQuest Group, a global strategic advisory, conference, and media firm serving the ag sector, today announced its Ag Club schedule for the fall of 2017, which includes the addition of a London event.

Ag Clubs are interactive luncheons that bring together agribusiness and ag investing market participants to discuss important trends and outlooks, and promote business success among regional and international stakeholders in cities across the globe. “While originally located exclusively in the U.S., the demand for the events has resulted in their expansion into Europe, providing a unique opportunity to meet seasoned agribusiness investors and other ag professionals in the local area,” said Susan Mellinger, Ag Club director at HighQuest Group

Each luncheon begins at noon and ends at 2 p.m. Ample networking time is provided until 12:30 p.m., followed by lunch, and presentations from speakers who have years of expertise in their fields. Costs run from $55 to $85 depending on the venue and location.

The Fall 2017 Ag Club luncheons begin the week of September 6 and feature speakers such as:

• David Gebhardt, vice president of marketing and strategy at GEOSYS, who will present at the September 6 and 7 Ag Clubs in Minneapolis and Des Moines, respectively.

Beth Sauerhaft, sustainability consultant with a PhD in arid land agroforestry, who will speak at the New York Ag Club on September 7.
