Alltech has always been ahead of the curve as an animal health company and they are leading the way when it comes to response to the COVID-19. The global company was the first to make changes in a conference by announcing on March 9 that its annual ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference (ONE) would go on as a virtual event.
The annual event was scheduled for May 17–19 in Lexington, Kentucky, and typically assembles more than 3,500 attendees from 70 countries. In light of rising health concerns related to coronavirus, livestreamed keynote presentations and on-demand video content from some of the world’s leading industry experts will launch on the Alltech ONE Virtual Experience website May 18.
Alltech has also created a special discussion series, Forging the Future of the Farm & Food Chain.
Learn more about both in this preview interview with Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech.
