“For the last 13 years, AgGateway has done a lot of work in the whole technology space and bringing data interoperability,” said AgGateway Executive Vice President Jeremy Wilson. “This conference has just turned into a really good event with our members and a lot of the core people. It’s like the third annual class reunion of the whole technology space working in this for the last 10-15 years.”
Wilson says AgGateway is currently gearing up for its 2023 Annual Conference, November 13-15 in Nashville.

“The things that are talked about here are important to retailers and so they’re important to us,” said ARA CEO Daren Coppock. “I find personally a lot of value in this meeting because of the new technologies and new players coming into the business.”
Coppock identified a couple of top issues for ag retailers discussed this year at Tech Hub LIVE. “One of them is building a data infrastructure from one end of the supply chain to the other…so that data transfer can be easy,” he said. “The other one is biological products…growers don’t have time to figure out which of the hundreds of biologicals out there will work on their farms…the retailers have an important role to play there.”
The 2023 ARA Conference & Expo will convene Nov. 28-30 in Orlando.
