This coming year will mark a decade of Peoples Company hosting the nation's premier agriculture real estate conference: the Land Investment Expo. What an incredible 10 years it has been. Since the Expo’s launch to this groundbreaking anniversary, we will have seen: two new presidents, three presidential elections, the deepest recession in more than 75 years, 500-year floods, punishing droughts, and record commodity and land prices.
How does our event continue to draw the most diverse audience of any its kind? With exciting and unpredictable moments – not the same rhetoric year after year. Our event has grown in stature every year by featuring local, national and global perspectives, offering farmers and institutional investors incredible access to some of the world’s foremost specialists on the economy, environment, technology and politics.
We continually offer fresh, new speakers, topics, ideas and ways of thinking. Check out highlights from years past:
Our decade of experience in planning, hosting and executing this event has made it the premier farmland event – and we know attendees past and future will agree. The challenge we strive to live up to each year is bringing you the real, in-depth stories that exist beneath the headlines when it comes to the economy, environment, investment, sustainability and regulatory compliance.
We are excited to invite you to our 11th annual Land Investment Expo on January 26, 2018 at the Sheraton Hotel West Des Moines. As always, attendee experience is enhanced with our roster of speakers, beginning with actor and comedian Ben Stein. In addition to movie and television acting, Ben has had a lucrative career as a teacher, economist, commentator, columnist and author. You’ll also hear from Steve Eisman, the outspoken hedge fund manager whose story was chronicled in Michael Lewis’ book "The Big Short," and later when he was played by Steve Carrell as "Mark Baum" in the acclaimed movie of the same name. We are also excited to welcome Mark Tercek, CEO of the Nature Conservancy. We will hear his thoughts on how being a Partner at Goldman Sachs shaped his approach to the environment, and how he champions the idea of natural capital.
Please, join us as we celebrate a decade of innovation, and look forward to many, many years more! Register now to attend!
