Soybean Summit: Home Edition


Campaign Overview

The Soybean Summit is the leading event for farmers, CCAs and other soybean industry stakeholders to learn the latest soybean agronomic and agribusiness management information. The challenge for the 2021 event was to figure out how we could successfully host the first-ever virtual Soybean Summit. With a little social distancing and a virtual twist, “Say Hello: Home Edition” was born. Deploying the brightly colored checkerboard theme and a comprehensive media promotion strategy, we knew we would be able to grab the attention of as many potential attendees as possible.
