Innovation Stage, Presented by Central Wisconsin Ag Services
Wednesday, Jan. 17, 1-4:30 p.m.
Thursday, Jan. 18, 8-9 a.m.
How it works
The CWAS Innovation Stage is located directly in the trade show. It features a smaller stage and presentation space, seating for roughly 30 attendees and cocktail tables in the back. Speakers have 20 minutes to present their latest and greatest ideas and you have 10 minutes to ask questions. Then we roll right into the next presentation.
It’s casual. Stay the entire presentation, stop by for a few minutes – it’s up to you. The best part is that you can continue networking after the presentation on the trade show floor with the speakers. This space is about meaningful interaction and giving you just enough information to peak your interest.
Check the full schedule for the most up-to-date information, and we’ll see you at Dairy Strong!
