This week the AgWired team is in Lexington, Kentucky for ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference. ONE is all about creation and innovation, allowing attendees to engage and interact with mind-expanding visionaries across a range of topics. Attendees come from a wide variety of agricultural sectors, industries, company sizes, and roles, and the educational sessions at ONE are sure to inspire them all.
Sessions range in topics from finance and emerging trends to innovative agriscience to the future of livestock production, with a focus on the conference’s overlying message that we are all connected in our task of feeding a growing world, and that the right ideas can turn every challenge facing the industry into an opportunity for change and growth.
AgWired’s first event at the conference was a guided tour through ONEVision, a 10,000-square-foot interactive digital exhibit that explores the future of global food safety and security as the world approaches a population of 9 billion by 2050. The exhibit highlights some of the major sustainability challenges facing our world today while showcasing some of the ways that Alltech is working to solve them.
