(Champaign, Illinois) Hosted by The Land Connection, the Organic Grain Conference & Trade Show (OGC) will return to the I Hotel and Conference Center at 1900 S 1st St. in Champaign, IL, on February 8 and 9, 2023. The OGC is the premier event in Illinois for grain farmers interested in learning more about organic farming, conservation practices, transitioning, and much more.
The conference will once again bring together diverse stakeholders and farmers to explore advancements and emerging issues in grain farming from a practical perspective. The event kicks off on February 8 with a half day of interactive workshops and wrap up with a mixer featuring local brewer Riggs Brewer.
Day 2, Thursday, February 9, will offer plenty of opportunity to engage directly with peers, consultants, researchers, and industry professionals. Day 2 brings three concurrent presentation tracks to choose from, roundtable discussion sessions, a keynote address, and a full day trade show.
Early bird registration for the conference runs through January 25, with 1-day registration starting at $75 and a 2-day conference package starting at $125. Snacks will be provided throughout Day 1. Lunch and a light breakfast are included on Day 2. After January 25, registration for a single day is $90 or $150 for both days.
The 2023 OGC is made possible by the generous support of the North Central Region Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE). For a full list of sponsors, please visit the event website.
