Keynote: Agribusiness Industry of the Future with Ken Zuckerberg, CoBank
While taking care of today’s business and growing existing offerings, what out-of-the-box concepts should retailers be playing with now that could be significant parts of their business in 5-10 years? Dive into the implications of trends in areas such as:
- Business – changes in business models (ie subscription), strategic partnerships, regulation
- Technology – new products and new classes of products, disruption from new entrants
- Financing – both for the business and for customer credit. Will cryptocurrency have a role?
- Electric vehicles and autonomous vehicles – impact on farm income, US energy production and energy sources, labor
- Consumer expectations for sustainability
- Others that will shape the industry and compel retailers to adapt.
