Alltech changes conference to virtual format due to COVID-19 risks

Opening plenary session during ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference in Lexington, Kentucky.

Alltech’s ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference scheduled for May 17-19 at Lexington, Kentucky, has been transitioned from in-person to a completely online platform for 2020.

The company says the risk of COVID-19 is too high for convening a conference of more than 3,500 attendees from 70 countries.

“Our first priority remains the health and safety of attendees, our colleagues, and the communities in which we live and work,” says Dr. Mark Lyons, president, and CEO of Alltech.

The Alltech ONE Virtual Experience will provide access to agricultural topics, including agri-business, aquaculture, beef, crop science, dairy, the future of food, pig, and poultry. Live-streamed keynote presentations and on-demand video content, including presentations from past years’ events, will be available beginning May 18, 2020.
