Retailers Live! Tour 2016
Retailers Live! Tour
Industry came together on May 2-6th to showcase a diverse range of agribusiness for the Retailers Live! Tour. The tour was sponsored by the Asmark Institute and made possible by a host of very willing cooperators. The Retailers Live! Tour was organized for staff members of the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA), The Fertilizer Institute (TFI), CropLife America (CLA), ResponsibleAg (RA), Ohio Agribusiness Association (OABA), Georgia Agribusiness Council (GAC), Kansas Agribusiness Retailers Association (KARA) and Meister Media. More than 20 staff members from the Washington, DC area and around the country participated in the week-long tour that started at Tipton, IN and ended at Clarksville, TN. The tour included stops at 47 different locations where the participants were able to witness the wide range of “hats” a retailer must wear to successfully operate a retail farm center. Technology was highlighted throughout the week and a special “ride & drive” equipment demonstration was organized in Bloomington, IL for the participants. The tour was designed to provide information and experience into the real world of the retail farm center with the goal of better arming the participants with a better overall understanding of the industry.
We extend our sincere appreciation to the participating companies that helped make the tour possible and also the participants for taking a week out of their busy schedules to attend the tour.
