The PA Dairy Summit has evolved over the years; tweaking programming, format, and even location to meet the needs of the ever-changing dairy industry and reach more dairy producers for whom the conference is held.

Mark your calendars now for the 2019 PA Dairy Summit, returning to the Lancaster Marriott and Conference Center on February 5 – 6. The planning committee (comprised of dairy producers and industry representatives with hosts Professional Dairy Managers of PA and Center for Dairy Excellence) is excited about making a few changes that will give Sponsors and Exhibitors an opportunity for more quality time with clients and prospective customers.

One such opportunity for face to face networking with clients will be a free evening on the first day of the conference that will replace the evening banquet. This will allow attendees to take advantage of the vibrant restaurants and night life within and near the City of Lancaster. We envision this ‘dinner on your own’ will give sponsors and exhibitors a chance to invite key customers and prospects for a more intimate gathering while giving the dairy operators time to get out of the conference setting and visit with friends.

As we make this and other adjustments to the program and networking opportunities for next year’s Summit, we would like to gather some information on how you make sponsorship decisions. Please take a few minutes to answer this very brief survey to give us a better understanding of how you weigh the value of sponsorship that might help us make further adjustments, if appropriate, to our structure and itinerary.

Thank you for your support of the PA Dairy Summit and for taking the time to complete this survey at
