About the Expo

The Land Investment Expo is the Midwest’s premier agricultural real estate conference with in-depth programming that each year attracts more than 600 attendees to West Des Moines, Iowa. Now entering its ninth year, the Land Expo features keynote presentations by some of the most recognizable names in land investing and land ownership, with 10 break out sessions and expert speakers covering timely and thought-provoking topics related to income-producing farmland.

The Land Expo connects policy experts, climate specialists, economists, hedge funds and institutional investors with farm producers, land managers, family offices and others operating in epicenters of agriculture. Previous conferences have covered a range of issues from commodities prices, energy markets and the role of agribusiness as it relates to the climate or broader economic conditions both in the Midwest and around the world.

The conference aims to be an all-inclusive resource for farm producers and ag real estate professionals, bringing together more than 600 people with access to multiple breakout sessions and a one-of-a-kind forum for discussions related to the farm economy, land values, and investment vehicles for those who desire a more comprehensive knowledge of investing in land.

The Tenth Annual Land Investment Expo will take place February 3, at the West Des Moines Sheraton Hotel. For more information, please contact Becky Rozenboom at 855-800-5263 or Becky@PeoplesCompany.com.
