December 10, 2018 – Registration is open for the Animal Agriculture Alliance’s 2019 Stakeholders Summit, themed A Seat At The Table. The event, now in its 18th year, will be held May 8-9 at the InterContinental At The Plaza Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. Early registration discounts are available through February 1 (pending availability). To register, visit https://www.animalagalliance.org/summit.

The conversation surrounding animal agriculture has been going on for much too long without engagement between key stakeholders in restaurant, retail and foodservice companies, farms and ranches, government agencies, agribusinesses, and agriculture and food associations. The annual Stakeholders Summit brings top thought leaders in the industry together to discuss hot-button issues and out-of-the-box ideas.

“Consumers are asking more questions about environmental stewardship, nutrition and animal welfare today than ever before,” said Kay Johnson Smith, Alliance president and CEO. “At the 2019 Summit, food industry stakeholders will learn how to address these concerns and gain the supportive network and tools they need for success in their business.”
