Annual meetings of state soybean, corn and pork groups take place at noon, Thursday Feb. 2. While the association annual meetings are free, open to the public and no advance registration is required, admission to all other meetings and the trade show require a registration fee.

Members of the Wisconsin Soybean Association and the Wisconsin Corn Growers Association save substantially on registration to the 2-day event, which includes free admission to the annual Pork Producers Taste of Elegance, morning coffee & rolls, two lunches, breaks, an evening reception, industry trade show and admission to all programs. Those registering before January 15 save an additional $50 on registration fees.

Reduced hotel room rates are available at the Kalahari resort from Feb. 1-Feb. 4, for registered Corn/Soy Expo attendees and all rooms include free waterpark passes. (Please note that hotel policy requires advance payment for first night stay, a cancellation fee may be charged and availability of Friday and Saturday night rooms are very limited.
