January 15-20, 2024


The NAICC Emerging & Evolving Technology Session will be held Thursday, January 18, 2024 from 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm at the San Antonio Marriott Rivercenter. This is a great way to advertise new products and services and is the only session designed specifically for and by NAICC members to showcase new technologies during the NAICC Annual Meeting!


NAICC Sustaining and Voting Members, as well as AG PRO EXPO Exhibitors, have the opportunity to give a brief, energizing synopsis of a product or technology to a full crowd of professional ag consultants, researchers, and industry representatives. Past topics have included new crop protection products under development, new uses of current chemistries, new equipment and software. The technologies presented are developed by Sustaining Members, Exhibitors, or our own NAICC crop and research consultant members. If it is new, our members want to hear about it!

This is a great opportunity to increase your visibility and a simple and inexpensive way to reach thousands of growers through these professionals. It is also an opportunity to invite interested parties back to your booth for a more in depth look at your product. Yet another way to stretch advertising dollars!


  • Each NAICC Sustaining or Voting member will be granted one (1) abstract submission at no charge.
  • A $500 fee will be charged for each additional abstract submission.
  • A $500 fee will be charged for ALL abstract submissions made by non-members.
