The New Orleans Investment Conference is one of the longest running, most successful conferences in the United States.
Last week AgroNosotros was proud to once again be there as a Platinum Sponsor in what was their 44th year hosting the event.
And we brought many of the key people in our organization with us to meet the attendees. 40 or so of whom are existing coffee and/or cacao parcel Owners.
We had Andres Lopez, our General Manager of farming operations and Armando Choco, our Executive Chocolate Maker, there to talk about our two favorite things..
Specialty Coffee and Fine Flavor Chocolate!
Our VP of Operations, Priscilla Clare Nash, was there for her first event and she got to talk about deeds for 4 days straight!
As an extra special treat, we also brought along a group of Panamanian folkloric dancers to perform at our booth and also at our private, invite only Saturday evening presentation (AKA a party!)
We have been supporting this folkloric group for a few years now helping the young people to keep their traditions alive and they were very proud to be able to perform for the 600+ attendees at the event.
We got to hang out with our friends Robert Helms and Russell Gray, The Real Estate Guys, and scores of their listeners who have also been following our progress since 2014.
Many of whom we have already exchanged emails with or had phone conversations with over the years, so it was great to put a person to the emails and build on our relationships.
There was also a large group of real estate Syndicators and industry influencers at the event that we are working with and have become friends with over the years, so it was great to catch up with them and discuss plans for 2019.
We invited our dear friend Keith Weinhold, host of the Get Rich Education podcast, to host a “meet and greet” at our booth on 2 occasions during the event where many of his avid listeners were able speak with him and also get their books signed!
On Saturday morning we held a 40-minute corporate presentation that was hosted by Andres and Armando.
With almost 100 people in the room they spoke eloquently about the many projects and practices we are implementing in Panama and Belize.
From farming to processing and from product development to the vitally important socially sustainable programs that we have running in the local communities.
If you would like to receive a digital copy of their presentations by email just let me know and we can send it your way.
During the event David Sewell, our Founder, was interviewed by Keith Weinhold at our booth to update his listeners on the recent developments at AgroNosotros.
And yours truly got to speak with Victor Menasce, host of the Real Estate Espresso Podcast, where International Coffee Farms is very proud to be the main sponsor.
So, keep your ears peeled for those two interviews.
And we hope to see you there next year when AgroNosotros will be returning for our 3rd year running as the Platinum Sponsor.
