Sponsorship Opportunities

This event will offer an opportunity for your business or organization to show its support for our vitally important agricultural industry.

Your contribution will assist greatly in supporting the HCA’s mission, while simultaneously promoting your business before, during and after the event.

We expect to have a vibrant and interactive group of attendees and presenters at this event. Promoting your company throughout the webinar brings you closer to farmers, processors, roasters, marketers and other industry stakeholders. Moreover, since the sessions will be recorded and viewed after the conclusion of the event, your messaging will be more enduring than in years past.
