[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – Can the agriculture industry feed the world while sustaining its land, air and water? Terms such as “carbon footprint,” unheard of ten years ago, now pepper the pages of newspapers and magazines and are gradually making their way into legislation. Seven years from now, in 2020, what will the impact of this be? GLIMPSE the future at the 29th Annual Alltech International Symposium in Lexington, Ky., USA, from May 19-22.
“Sustainability is key for the future of the agriculture industry. Put simply, if it’s not sustainable, it’s not going to last. Carbon footprint is only the tip of the iceberg: global warming, droughts, flooding, pollution and water shortages are all becoming major global issues,” said Kevin Tuck, managing director of Alltech’s European Bioscience Centre and chairperson of the environment track at Symposium. “It’s time for agriculture to step up and lead. Improving efficiency within any process reduces expenses, resources used and waste.”
New in 2013, Alltech International Symposium delegates will have the opportunity to select breakout session tracks. These tracks, as opposed to traditional species or subject breakouts, will offer attendees a more holistic experience in which they take part in discussions ranging from algae and agriculture’s carbon footprint to nutrition and marketing.
Environment-focused breakout session tracks include:
Registration for Alltech’s 29th Annual International Symposium is open now and available for an early discount price of $599 until April 25 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Standard registration after April 25 will be $850. Two paid registrations from a single company or organization will receive a third registration free of charge. Delegates who are members of ARPAS and AAVSB can also earn CEUs.
Attendees are encouraged to register early as space is limited. Of the nearly 3,000 international delegates who attended the 2012 Alltech International Symposium, 97 percent indicated that they plan to attend again.
