Ag Media Summit is going virtual. We were looking forward to seeing everyone at AMS 2020 in Kansas City. However, the safety and well-being of our participants is our priority. Based on growing concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on our community’s ability to travel to the conference, the Ag Media Summit Steering Committee is now moving AMS 2020 to a fully virtual conference. As the AMS Steering Committee works to move AMS 2020 completely online, we look forward to offering you the same vibrant programming, impactful networking, and opportunities to connect.  In addition to participating in the virtual event, all attendees will have access to on-demand recordings.  Stayed tuned for more information regarding registration and support opportunities. We hope that you will join us for this reimagined event and celebrate our collective resilience and dedication to forging connections.  Please feel free to reach out to us with any questions at info@agmediasummit.com.
