2011 Conference Overview


2011 ARA Conference & Expo Overview

The 2011 ARA Conference & Expo, Growing a Sustainable Business, examined the major pillars of sustainability—social, economic and environmental—from three unique perspectives including customers, consumers and the Government. In addition, attendees heard practical ideas and management solutions for making their business more sustainable from leading agricultural retailers.

Registrants from this year’s conference also have the chance to attend ARA’s Annual Dinner and Auction at the historic Addison restaurant in Boca Raton and participate in a golf tournament to benefit ARA’s Political Action Committee (ARAPAC). 

The conference schedule allowed for more time to set up meetings with customers and devotes more than nine hours to the trade show between the general session and other events.
