Governors, Senators, and Cabinet secretaries attend it. The current President of the United States has attended it. Farmland owners, farmland investors, and industry experts attend it. Isn’t it time you made plans to attend the Land Investment Expo in downtown Des Moines?

The 14th annual edition of this must-attend event will take place on Tuesday, January 12. Not surprisingly, a tremendous slate of speakers has been booked, including former White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly and former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci. Country music star Easton Corbin is a natural on this All-American stage. As a youngster, the Florida native was an FFA member, and he went on to study agribusiness marketing at the University of Florida before launching his music career.

Such engaging thought leaders are typical of this world-class summit, which has featured keynote speakers including Jon Meacham (2020), Martha Stewart (2019), Kevin O’Leary (2018), Ben Stein (2017), and T. Boone Pickens (2014). Donald Trump launched his presidential bid with a visit to Iowa in 2015. His first stop? The Land Investment Expo.

In addition to the main stage, breakout sessions focus on trending issues related to all aspects of land, including investment strategies, finance, cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, consumer preferences, and business innovation.

Expo History

The first Land Investment Expo was held in 2008. Naturally, it attracted strong interest from farmland owners, financial leaders, and policymakers from Iowa and the Midwest. In the years that followed, the Expo grew into one of the nation’s premier forums thanks to its focus on all aspects of agriculture. This decision — to go beyond a strictly financial component and explore vital elements such as sustainability, emerging trends, and policy considerations — vaulted the Expo into a league of its own with a national following. Major institutional investors, national agricultural organizations, leading economists, and political leaders recognize the Expo as a critical venue to discuss the challenges and opportunities involving a whole host of topics with global implications. Thanks to more than a decade of thought leadership, January’s Expo is now the kick-off event for the entire industry.
