2021 Virtual Annual Convention

The 102nd American Farm Bureau Convention will be held online following the cancellation of all events through January 31, 2021, at the San Diego Convention Center where the convention was scheduled to take place.

Our event will be fully virtual to accommodate this change and prioritize the health and safety of our attendees and staff.

The 2021 Annual Convention theme of “Stronger Together” underscores the importance of unity and finding creative ways to engage and support our friends, neighbors and industry. AFBF is committed to providing the premier content our members have come to expect from our in-person events and is excited to “open the doors” to this virtual event with free registration. We invite the whole family to attend the 2021 Virtual Convention with the unique opportunity to bring this event right into your living room, including special on-demand content and a new Kids Corner.

Virtual Content

AFBF’s 2021 Virtual Annual Convention will bring together farmers, ranchers and industry experts to discuss the top issues facing agriculture, including the impact of COVID-19, sustainability and the future of the supply chain.

We will feature keynote speakers who inspire and motivate grassroots action and AFBF President Zippy Duvall as he and grassroots leaders set the direction for the organization for the coming year.

The Virtual Annual Convention will also bring back attendee favorites from the Ag Innovation Challenge and YF&R competitions to the Ag Foundation Book of the Year and the anticipated Farm Dog of the Year.
