Tina Saitone The Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics at UC Davis and Wells Fargo Bank are proud to announce the 2017 offering of the California Agribusiness Executive Seminar (CAES) on March 5 – 7, 2017 at Balboa Bay Resort in Newport Beach, CA.

The CAES brings together highly experienced executives and leaders from the agribusiness community to discuss strategic issues and trends facing their businesses using a combination of case studies and issue papers. The interactive case-study format allows participants to exchange ideas and enhance strategic thinking, while the issue papers provide participants with an in-depth analysis of key issues and challenges facing the agribusiness community presented by leading experts.

All of the activities associated with the CAES will be held within the Balboa Bay Resort. Thus your experience at CAES will be amid a backdrop of the amazing views of Newport Bay and in the beautiful weather afforded by Southern California.

Program development is well underway so please check the website soon for specific cases and issues that will be included on the 2017 program. We will begin taking applications for the 2017 CAES in September 2016 via an online portal linked to this webpage. Please get your applications in early. We look forward to seeing you in March 2017.
