ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA, U.S. — “Global Warning: Don’t get Burned in a Sizzling World Market” is the theme of the American Feed Industry Association’s (AFIA) 2015 Equipment Manufacturers Conference, Nov. 5-7, in St. Petersburg, Florida, U.S. Registration is now open with an early-bird rate available through Oct. 7.
The Equipment Manufacturers Conference is presented by AFIA via its Equipment Manufacturers Committee. The educational event is designed to address issues pertinent to today's equipment designers, builders and installers who serve the feed, pet food and ingredient industries.
“Having worked in feed manufacturing for many years, and now as the committee’s AFIA staff liaison, I know how important this conference is to the equipment sector of our industry,” said Gary Huddleston, AFIA manager of feed manufacturing safety and environmental affairs. “I look forward to connecting with both veterans and those new to equipment manufacturing as funds are raised for education and attendees sit in on educational sessions.”
The three-day event will kick off with its golf scramble tournament at The Vinoy Golf Club –an annual fundraiser for the EMC Scholarship Fund– followed by two days of educational sessions covering the global trade market in agriculture including industry insight from two of AFIA’s trade experts Joel G. Newman, AFIA president and chief executive officer, and Gina Tumbarello, AFIA director of international policy and trade.
A hotel room block is available to registrants at The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg Resort & Golf Club where the meeting will be held.
