DES MOINES, Iowa — The Land Investment Expo (Expo), one of the premier agricultural forums in the nation, today announced its first set of keynote speakers for the 2024 Expo, which will take place at Hy-Vee Hall in downtown Des Moines, Iowa, on Tuesday, January 9, 2024.
Former NFL Quarterback Drew Bledsoe will speak about his transition from the gridiron to winery owner and his passion for growing winegrapes. Willis Sparks of Eurasia Group will offer perspective on the world’s geopolitical climate and how it will impact our economy. Former Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City Presidents Esther George and Tom Hoenig will take part in an enlightening discussion on navigating today’s economic challenges, including rising interest rates and inflationary pressures. California Assemblyman James Gallagher will provide a perspective on how agricultural-related policies being developed – and in some cases enacted – in California will have far-reaching ramifications that some may not realize.
“The 2024 Land Investment Expo is poised to be the best Expo yet, with a slate of high-caliber speakers who will offer thought-provoking expertise and commentary for our attendees from around the world,” said Steve Bruere, President of Peoples Company, which hosts the Land Investment Expo. “Any one of our speakers would have the ability to keynote a single conference, but what distinguishes the Land Investment Expo from other industry conferences is that attendees hear multiple featured speakers, engage in breakout sessions and network with a wide variety of business professionals, land owners, agricultural experts and investors.”
Additional speakers and details of breakout sessions will be announced at a later date.
In its 17th year, the Land Investment Expo attracts more than 1,000 attendees annually. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, the Expo began offering both online and in-person attendance. Tickets for both virtual and in-person attendance are on sale now at www.LandInvestmentExpo.com.
