2023 Conference Sponsor and Exhibitor Opportunities

We are pleased to announce The Practical Farmer of Iowa Annual Conference will be held Jan. 20-21, 2023, at the Scheman Building at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. The PFI conference experience includes a wide range of farmer-led educational content and plenty of time for making meaningful connections: 50+ sessions, hundreds of attendees, 80+ exhibitors, and many fun activities including the return of the PFI Dinner & Potluck.

The conference theme this year is On Common Ground, where together we will explore our shared experiences in agriculture and find connections across our various enterprises, geographies and farming goals. Please find more information about this year’s conference on our website as it becomes available. Scroll down this page to find the exhibitor/sponsor registration form.

Please note: PFI will continue to follow CDC guidelines for mask-wearing, which may include recommending universal indoor mask-wearing in the event of “high” community levels of COVID-19 transmission.
