Dear friend of agricultural biotechnology:
In recent years, the annual Agricultural Biotechnology International Conference (ABIC) has become an essential event for professionals around the world.

Scientists, entrepreneurs, policy specialists, government officials and many others depend on ABIC conferences to be challenging, penetrating and highly applicable to their day-to-day work.

It is with the greatest pride that we invite you to attend ABIC 2007, from September 23 to 26, 2007 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Our aim is to build on the successes of previous conferences and take ABIC into exciting new territory.

Get close to consumers
The field of agricultural biotechnology is located at the intersection of scientific possibility and commercial reality. The advance of the products and technologies of ag biotech depends in equal measure on what science can do and how consumers respond.

The theme of ABIC 2007 Calgary is Harnessing Science for the Evolving Consumer: The Fit of Agricultural Biotechnology.

Get close to the issues
With ABIC Calgary 2007 drawing near, we have searched the globe to bring you the most authoritative and forward-looking speakers on a wide variety of essential ag biotech topics. These include:
  • food preservation, storage, processing and development technologies
  • consumer choices and perceptions
  • pharmaceuticals, nutraceuticals and cosmetics
  • livestock genomics
  • zoonotics
  • rural development and enhancement
  • industrial Bioproducts.

Get close to Western Canada's magnificent outdoors
Calgary, Alberta, Canada is uniquely positioned to host an event of the magnitude of ABIC 2007. A sophisticated, high-tech city of 1 million people, Calgary offers all the big-city amenities: convenient air connections, fine dining, extensive shopping and first-class accommodations.

A short drive from Calgary is the gateway to the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Here you'll find a range of leisure and recreational activities that very few places in the world can match. If you like to hike, we have some of the best anywhere. If fly-fishing is your passion, nowhere can you find world-class angling so close to a major urban center. If you enjoy mountain biking, the possibilities are endless.

If ag biotech is your business, ABIC Calgary 2007 is the place to be. We look forward to welcoming you next year and providing an unforgettable learning and networking experience.

Yours sincerely,

Rick Smith
