The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) has opened registration for its 2023 Purchasing and Ingredient Suppliers Conference (PISC), happening on March 7-9 in Orlando, Fla. This three-day, must-attend program includes education and networking events for hundreds of feed ingredient buyers and sellers across the animal food manufacturing industry.

“We have heard loud and clear from our members: animal food industry professionals come to PISC to do business,” said Rebecca Kane, CMP, AFIA’s director of meetings and events.

“This year, we are excited to offer even more opportunities to foster conversation and relationship building between suppliers and customers.”

In addition to the networking events, conference attendees will hear presentations on myriad topics, including: supply chain challenges, recent news on African swine fever and other animal diseases, effectively communicating about agriculture, navigating sustainability to support the feed industry and stakeholders, and forecasting the grain and economic outlooks.

Early-bird registration is available now until Jan. 6 for $650 for AFIA members and $2,200 for nonmembers. Following that date, the fee will increase to $725 and $2,500, respectively.

Through the Buyers to PISC program, member-company professionals in buying roles who normally would not be able to attend the event are invited to apply for a conference scholarship.
