Measuring the Value of the St. Louis Marketing & Distribution Convention

In an every-dime-matters environment, budgeting for a convention is a tough choice. Perhaps equally tough is passing on the possibility of finding new opportunities to get your equipment in front of farmers, learning new sales strategies, or making that connection with a peer that can lead to a new product line.

The Marketing & Distribution Convention, which is Nov. 5 to 7 in St. Louis, is a once-a-year gathering that offers these opportunities in a fashion that is unmatched in the farm implement industry. The Association provides the space and the speakers, but you bring the questions, the answers, the creativity, the problem-solving, and the conversations that may shape the direction of the shortline industry in 2020.

We want you to be a part of it. Join the nearly 300 executives who have already registered for the meeting. Meet the nearly 60 marketers also already registered. (Includes EMDA Attendees) Hear from pros on building an influential brand, the state of the industry, digital marketing, autonomous farming, and more.

And please, come early. The welcome reception at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 5 will be hosted by the Association’s Marketing Section. It is where the work begins to find distribution partners and strengthen relationships with current partners. It promises to be a lively event and set the tone for three days of intense learning, networking, and opportunity-finding.
