TURNING A CONFERENCE INTO VIRTUAL LEARNING!

Asian Agribiz has adopted the concept of virtual conferencing to create a learning experience that delivers practical, farm-level, solutions to producers in Southeast and South Asia without the need to travel and with the luxury of being able to watch presentations more than once!

‘Living with African Swine Fever’ was the first such event organized by Asian Agribiz. Held over four Thursday in February and March, this virtual conference attracted over 200 participants. Read some of their comments:

"It was an excellent conference. I liked that the half-day learning events were spaced over several weeks. The topics gave depth and breadth to cover this important subject. The speakers gave a hopeful path that we all need to be in for the long haul. We are now echoing the conference learnings in our organization and in the different circles that our people are connected with" – Glen Eric Ibañez, Division Vice President at Unahco, Philippines
