2019 Conference Sponsorship

As the largest gathering of sustainable southern farmers, the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group conference is the best place to connect with both producers and industry leaders in order to build working relationships in the agricultural sector. This year we’re opening the trade show to the local general public providing you with a larger opportunity to share your branding message to the community. This combined with the nearly 1,200 individuals representing our 13-state region and beyond, this robust network of farmers, activists and support organizations provides an incredible opportunity—not only to introduce your product, brand or service—but to also gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the industry. Your company or organization will not only gain direct exposure and acknowledgement during the conference but also gain wide exposure through print advertising, newsletters, and web and social media recognition during the months leading up to and following the conference.

The four-day conference includes:

  • Pre-conference farm tours and intensive courses.

  • More than 70 sessions in subjects for farmers,
    food system leaders, and farm service providers.

  • Over 60 exhibitors.

  • Networking opportunities—regional and topical meetings,
    seed exchange, happy hour mixer, photo booth, and more.

Because sustainable solutions depend on the involvement of the entire community, Southern SAWG is committed to including all persons in the South without bias.
