Early Bird, Hotel Registration Deadlines Approaching

Published: Oct 01, 2013
Next Friday, Oct. 11, is the deadline to register for the early bird rate for the USMEF Strategic Planning Conference and to register at the group rate at the Omni Hotel.

The annual USMEF Strategic Planning Conference, scheduled for Tuesday through Thursday, Nov. 5-7, at the Omni Ft. Worth Hotel, is an ideal opportunity to get an international view on issues of timely importance to the U.S. red meat industry including:
  • Trade policy – how is it affecting market access for U.S. exports?
  • Global economic growth – where are the top growth markets?
  • Animal welfare – how do global standards affect U.S. production practices?
  • Consumer preferences – what are the trends in our top export markets?

After the meeting, join your fellow attendees for USMEF's Golf Tournament on Thursday afternoon. A great opportunity to network with your peers, the tournament will take place at the Golf Club Fossil Creek. This exclusive par 72 public course, designed by America's foremost golf legend, Arnold Palmer, winds its way through 1,150 acres of natural Texas terrain. Surrounded by rocky-ledged creeks and crystal lakes, gently contoured bluffs and massive trees, each of the 18 holes at the Golf Club Fossil Creek issues the premier challenge to experienced and beginning golfers alike.

Register before Oct. 11 to receive the “early bird” registration discount. We look forward to seeing you in Texas!
