The 9th Annual Precision Farming Dealer Summit, held at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown in Indianapolis, Ind., on January 8-9, 2024, drew a sold-out crowd of 183 attendees, including 58 different dealerships from across the United States, Canada and Australia.
Centered on the theme “Proven Strategies for Precision Success,” the program featured 2-days of dealer-to-dealer roundtable discussions, panel presentations, general sessions and intense networking opportunities.
Precision Farming Dealer technology editor Noah Newman noted during remarks that attendees cited the short- and long-term value they draw from Summit discussions and exchanges with precision dealers of different sizes and locations.
"Attendees enjoyed hearing different perspectives from a diverse group of speakers on new technology, autonomy, service stress alleviation, training, customer clinics, farmer’s needs, OEM vision, burnout prevention and more,” says Newman.
Among the highlights of the 2024 Precision Farming Dealer Summit was the return of the OEM Panel featuring precision executives from AGCO, Case IH and New Holland and breakout classrooms that gave attendees the opportunity to attend six knowledge-packed sessions featuring an array of experts on emerging precision products and technologies.
Also announced at the Precision Farming Dealer Summit was the return of the Dealership Minds Summit, which will be held August 6-7, 2024, at the Marriott Madison West Hotel & Conference Center in Madison, Wis.
From the single-location independent retailer to the multi-store farm equipment dealer, the precision manager to the technology specialist, intense knowledge sharing and networking were in abundance throughout the 2024 Precision Farming Dealer Summit.
