PDPW Business Conference is a Go – Virtually!

To protect the public's health, and in step with the recommendations of our President and Governor, the PDPW Board of Directors have decided to offer the PDPW Business Conference in a “Virtual Conference” format, rather than in-person.
Our goal is to ensure all registered participants have access to the world-class speakers they need and deserve. In additional to live-stream viewing during the Virtual Conference, registered attendees can access the digital trade show "PDPW Prime" and watch all recorded sessions on-demand at their leisure.
Registration “to attend” is still open by clicking “Register Now”.  Please watch PDPW's website and the PDPW mobile app for details on how to access the Virtual Conference and recorded sessions.  
We continue to serve our mission to share ideas, solutions, resources and experiences that help dairy producers succeed. 

Dairying today takes focus and the right frame of mind. If your destiny is dairy, you need fresh ideas and innovative solutions to keep your tank full as you thrive in today’s challenging environment. 

Meet us where ideas begin and save the date now for the 2020 PDPW Business Conference, March 18-19 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis. The 2020 Conference’s theme is “Focus” and will feature two days filled with world-renowned speakers presenting dynamic educational sessions and workshops.

The PDPW Business Conference has grown to be the premier educational event for the dairy industry, where active dairy farmers and agribusiness professionals from across the country and globe assemble for the latest in research, innovations and education.
