Trade Talk, the centerpiece event of the National Association of Farm Broadcasting's (NAFB's) Annual Convention, affords around 90 company and organization participants access to member broadcasters to discuss the issues and topics that are important to their organizations, associations, and companies. Participants occupy 10 x 8 booth spaces, represented by spokespersons trained and comfortable doing radio/broadcast interviews. Reporter/broadcasters tend to seek news and issues perspective in the Trade Talk environment rather than product promotion or brand marketing. NAFB has calculated that 2,360 interviews are accomplished, based on 118 participating broadcasters, and that those interviews have a collective air-time value among our member stations and networks of $423,903. Participants are best to be represented by two spokespersons, to accommodate more than one visiting interviewer at any given time.

U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will co-host this national renewable energy conference to help create partnerships and strategies necessary to accelerate commercialization of renewable energy industries and distribution systems.
This conference will focus on biomass, wind, and solar research and commercialization. USDA and DOE expect the conference to identify major impediments, review challenges and make recommendations to help accelerate renewable energy technology development; examine key incentives that would help promote certainty and reduce risk for investors and developers in the marketplace; review challenges of developing new distribution systems; and raise public awareness.
