Each all-inclusive package includes:

  • Hotel Accommodation
  • Attend all scientific meetings, poster presentations and networking events
  • Meals during the meeting
  • Transportation from the airport to the conference hotel using the AGBT shuttle

About this year's venue

AGBT Ag 2023 will be held at the Hyatt Hotel in San Antonio, Texas. Just 20 minutes from downtown, our venue immerses guests in the beauty of Central Texas. The estate is surrounded by lush greenery and coastal oaks, providing participants with more inspiration to reimagine farming on the land and water.

our commitment

Collaboration among scientists to help us survive a global pandemic is unique. This same collaboration will help us build a more sustainable world. As a recognized cornerstone of the genome research community, Genome Biology and Technology Advances aims to bring together the world's leading genome researchers, data scientists, breeders, policy makers, funders and technology innovators, and to provide an A space where the talents of Agrigenomics and Agrigenomics come together to seek solutions to global agricultural and genomics problems.

what the experts say

One of humanity's greatest challenges is to sustainably produce more food on existing farmland. AGBT Ag... facilitates the dialogue and exchange of ideas necessary to bring about the Fourth Agricultural Revolution.

Sarah Hearne, Chair of the AGBT Agricultural Congress, Senior Scientist and Maize Geneticist, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT)

The goal of our work is to develop sustainable agriculture around feeding people. That's why it's really exciting to have a conference like AGBT Ag that brings together experts from different fields.

Charlie Johnson, Texas A&M AgriLife 2022 Organizing Committee Member and Executive Director, Genomics and Bioinformatics

AGBT Ag provides an excellent opportunity for the community to speak more across disciplines, so we can identify opportunities and spaces where existing technologies can be expanded.

Sarah Hearne, Chair of the AGBT Agricultural Congress, Senior Scientist and Maize Geneticist, International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT)

AGBT Ag strives to bring together the best members of the scientific community and the best science. It brings the whole industry together - and ensures that we have true partnerships to ensure we can deliver end-to-end interventions.

Appolinaire Djikeng, Professor and Chair of Tropical Agriculture and Sustainable Development and Director of Tropical Livestock Genetics and Health, University of Edinburgh

[AGBT Ag] couldn't have been better as a lecturer, scientist and breeder... I have had enough time to update my lectures and research methods for the benefit of my students and tutors.
