Acres U.S.A. VIRTUAL EVENT FAQs

We know participating in a virtual event isn’t the same as taking it all in, in person. We get it, but virtual is the best we can do this year.

The circumstances in 2020 have changed how everyone can produce events— and we are no exception! So we’re rolling with the punches and hope you’ll join us. We’re working to create an engaging and inspiring virtual experience that will provide the in-depth education you need to improve your operation.

WHAT IS A VIRTUAL EVENT?

A virtual event allows attendees to access content exclusive to our event. From 20-minute workshops to half-day educational sessions, our attendees will be able to see and hear presenters while following along with their presentation slides.


DO I HAVE TO WATCH AT THAT TIME?

Yes and no? To get the full experience, attending live will connect you with attendees and allow you to ask our presenters questions directly. That said, replays will be available for any registrant, as will special deals on books, presentation materials and connections with trusted brands in Eco-Agriculture.


CAN I WATCH ON MY PHONE OR OTHER DEVICE?

Yes, our event will be viewable on every major device, from tablet to phone to your desktop computer. You can also call in from your phone to listen in.


ARE THERE SERVICES FOR HEARING IMPAIRED?

Yes, we are working to provide real-time closed captioning services for all attendees. Plus, we will make transcripts available whenever possible in the event replays.


WILL I BE ABLE TO ASK QUESTIONS?

Absolutely. Getting your questions answered is the number one goal for all of our events. We will host Q&A sessions following each presentation allowing you to have easy access to our speaker’s expertise and get your questions answered in real-time. Plus, real-time chat functions will allow you to ask other attendees for advice.


WILL I STILL GET SPECIAL DEALS TO YOUR BOOKSTORE?

Yes, just like at our in-person events, we will be giving special coupon codes and deals for attendees at our virtual events. In fact, we are likely to give even more aggressive deals for virtual events since we are not shipping our bookstore across the country.


WHAT IS ECO-AG CONFERENCE & TRADE SHOW and HEALTHY SOIL SUMMIT?

Those are our two biggest events ever year. This year, our Healthy Soil Summit is on Aug. 25-26, and our Eco-Ag Conference & Trade Show is Dec. 1-4. Our plan for 2021 is to return to in-person events.


HOW CAN I REGISTER FOR THE HEALTHY SOIL SUMMIT?

Registration is now open. Click here.


HOW CAN I REGISTER FOR THE ECO-AG CONFERENCE & TRADE SHOW?

Registration is now open. Click here.


CAN MORE THAN 1 PERSON WATCH WITH A SINGLE REGISTRATION?

Technically, yes. We can’t control that. But we do ask for our audience to be respectful and do their best to follow the rules, just like at an in-person event. If you want to organize a viewing for a few folks, contact us at events@acresusa.com to let us know what you are planning, and we can find a very reasonable rate to get you all in.


HOW CAN I SIGN UP TO LEARN MORE?

If you’d like to sign up for our regular newsletters, visit this page to sign up and customize your newsletter preferences.


WILL I CONTINUE TO GET CEU CREDITS FOR ATTENDING VIRTUAL EVENTS?

We are currently exploring CEU credits for live virtual events through the ASA. Stay tuned for more information.


WHERE WILL I BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE EVENT REPLAYS?

You will be able to find all event replays at Eco-Ag U Online within 72 hours of the end of the event. View all the video recorded presentations, plus get access to downloadable presentations, special book coupons and more through the replay experience.
