Dear GTM Friends:
Each and every year we strive to make the Growing the Margins Conference and Exhibition programs new and relevant to the current interests of stakeholders in the agriculture and bioeconomy sectors. Looking back over the eight annual GTM conferences as well as the four predecessor Integrated Solutions to Manure Management (ISTMM) conferences, perhaps you will agree that this is what we have in fact done.
To reiterate, the program content of any subsequent conference must be both relevant and new. The challenges and opportunities within the agriculture and bioeconomy sectors that have been the mainstay of past GTM programs continue to exist; however, if there is insufficient change year to year, it begs the question as to whether or not we should proceed with another GTM conference in 2015. Following discussion with our major supporters and after much thought, we have decided to skip 2015 and instead use the intervening time to design a program for a 2016 GTM conference that justifies your interest and attendance.
Please stay tuned for further information as it comes available. In the meantime, do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or suggestions.
