Registration opens for ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference
Registration for the 2016 edition of Alltech's annual international conference, ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference, is now available at one.alltech.com.
Some attendees have deemed Alltech's annual international conference an experience evocative of Disney's EPCOT; others have called it the United Nations of agriculture. One perspective, however, is universal: it is heralded as the most unique and innovative event that conference attendees say they have experienced.
A forum for world-changing ideas, global networking and inspiration, 97% of event attendees have said they would attend again. The conference offers a topical blend of science, agriculture, entrepreneurship, business and marketing information, along with a craft beer festival and a panoply of chefs preparing international delights to sample.
In its September 2015 issue, Kentucky Living described the 2015 extravaganza: "Rupp Arena swirls with lights, pulses with loud, dramatic music. Nearly 3,000 people from 68 counties are there. It's called REBELation and synonyms for 'rebel' fall into place on the screens mounted behind the stage. In the buzzy air of innovation, presenters talk about plants that change color, keeping 'smart' beehives, using drones to monitor crop growth and half a dozen other seemingly science fiction futures."
What began in 1983 as a gathering of Alltech founder and president Dr. Pearse Lyons and a few family members and friends is recognised today as the region's premier business event. It attracts a diverse crowd of dignitaries, business leaders, researchers, professors, marketing professionals, brewers, farmers and ranchers.
Next year's event will be even bigger, with nearly 5,000 people expected to come to Lexington, Kentucky, US, for the conference to be held May 22-25, 2016.
