American Farm Bureau Convention Goes Virtual for 2021


In response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the American Farm Bureau Federation announced that the 102nd American Farm Bureau Convention will be going virtual next year.

The AFBF released the following statement on their website this morning:

We have made the difficult decision to convert the 2021 American Farm Bureau Convention from an in-person to a virtual event. Due to the cancelation of all events through January 31, 2021, at the San Diego Convention Center, as well as out of an abundance of caution during this ongoing pandemic, we felt it was the right decision to make at this time.

Our top priority at every Farm Bureau gathering is the safety of our attendees and staff. Although we are saddened to not meet in person for this convention, we are eager to bring this event safely to farm and ranch homes across the country and excited to offer the same, top-level content our members have come to expect from our in-person events. While a virtual event cannot replace the personal meetings and conversations we value at our events, the health of our entire Farm Bureau family comes first.

The 102nd American Farm Bureau Virtual Convention will be held January 10-13, 2021, and bring together farmers, ranchers and industry experts to discuss the top issues facing agriculture. We are excited to “open the doors” to this virtual convention with free registration and will provide further details in the coming weeks regarding workshop topics, speakers and registration.
