Tech Hub LIVE Conference and Expo: At the Intersection of Technology and Agronomy

Next month, Des Moines will play host to a new event designed to help you understand and manage your use of digital and precision agriculture technology to improve agronomy, efficiency, profitability, and service to farmers.


The Tech Hub LIVE Conference and Expo debuts July 20-21 at the Iowa Events Center with unmatched educational programming and networking opportunities.

“After more than a year of mostly virtual meetings and education, we’re thrilled to bring an in-person learning and networking experience to the heart of the Corn Belt,” says Paul Schrimpf, Program Chairman for Tech Hub LIVE.

Tech Hub LogoThe program agenda is deep expertise among presenters and panelists, featuring a diverse mix of topics and a broader focus on the business, agronomic, and technological trends that are impacting farmers and their trusted advisers. Tech Hub LIVE is where all these will intersect, shedding light on how the various stakeholders in the ag tech space are — or will need to — collaborate in order to bring value and scale to best practices and technologies.

For retailers and trusted advisers, Tech Hub LIVE will also untangle the challenges of building a successful, technology-infused precision program. Business Consultant Kylen Hunt and ag entrepreneur Dan Frieberg, manager of ag consultant firm Premier Crop, will lead sessions designed to bring clarity and suggest solutions to key service provider pain points.

Sessions and workshops will be offered that are focused on key technologies, including drone systems, imagery, sensors, robotics, and autonomy. One highlight on the agronomic side — Dr. Brian Arnall will lead a panel of expert Extension specialists on an in-depth examination of nitrogen management strategies.

“Nitrogen is no longer just about yield,” says Arnall. “Social and environmental issues are going to become more and more important. This session well help attendees have a better understanding of the mechanisms involved in nitrogen use, uptake, and management.”

Along with the conference sessions, the Expo will feature leading digital, precision, and technology organizations displaying the latest in products and services. Many of these organizations will be presenting on the Expo floor Tech Talk Stage to speak directly to issues of collaboration and connectivity in tech adoption, and pathways for improvement.

Dozens of organizations have committed the time and talents of their top ag tech professionals in support of the event so far, and more are joining every day. It will be a diverse audience rich in experience, and guaranteed to make your experience at Tech Hub as beneficial and profitable as possible.
