Event Description

Grey County is excited to continue the conversations we started in 2016 about the rural renaissance at the intersection of agriculture and technology. As with last year, we’ve assembled an inspiring line-up of innovators and thought leaders to guide our sessions and engage participants.

This year we will shine the light on global challenges and local opportunities.

We’ll celebrate successes, explore problems to be solved, and inspire creative engagement between ag and tech throughout the day. You'll learn from keynote speakers and session participants including:
