Mark your calendars for the 2018 NBA Summer Conference, hosted by the Kansas Buffalo Association, in Kansas City next June 27 – 29th!
The conference planning committee is currently finalizing the agenda, see our tentative agenda here, but plan to enjoy presentations on pertinent topics that will range from today’s bison conformation challenges, to soil conservation, to bison-specific parasite management. All attendees will have valuable knowledge to take home, and that’s not to mention the fun to be had. We’ll have a bison culinary cook-off on Thursday, live entertainment on Wednesday, bison themed dinners both nights, a virtual ranch tour of five plus Kansas bison ranches all professionally filmed, and an optional ranch tour on Friday afternoon. We’re even auctioning off a six head bison herd! This will be a very producer-friendly bison conference that is not to be missed.
And don’t miss these great sponsorship opportunities that will show your support for today’s bison industry while leveraging the summer conference itself. We have a sponsor level for everyone!
Our host hotel is the Kansas City Westin Crown Center in the old Kansas City downtown, close to a variety of attractions and a stop on the free trolley system that will take you all over KC! Rooms are available to attendees at the special discounted rate of $159/night – double occupancy. The deadline to reserve your room is May 28, 2018. Reserve your room by calling (888) 627-8538 and request the National Bison Association room block.
Each summer, the National Bison Association holds its summer conference in a different location. The conference is a three-day long, family-friendly event that features top-notch speakers, great networking opportunities and our signature hospitality and bison feasts!
