CEC 2020 is not a webinar – It’s an online community built for country elevator personnel that includes convenient access to experts and fellow industry members, an exclusive library of multi-media resources and three days of live presentations meant to inform, educate and entertain.


CEC 2020 includes unique networking and interactive opportunities throughout the event: 

Participant Profile
Make sure to take full advantage of CEC by filling out your profile in the platform -- which opens a week before the first day of the event -- and connecting with fellow attendees.

Participant Chat and Networking
Once you log into the CEC platform, you can see who else has registered and send them an in-platform message. Register with a group? Create an in-platform chat so that you can stay synched with teammates across the country.

Networking opportunities are plentiful: Each morning's speaker Q&A session begins and ends with moderated professional networking; each afternoon offers livestreamed entertainment segments after each breakout for social networking with fellow participants. Stay tuned for details on our livestreamed entertainment.

Speaker Chat and Networking
After each morning's live general session webcast there will be several post-session meeting rooms with speakers who’ve made themselves available for questions. These rooms will be open for all participants. Each afternoon breakout will be conducted in a webinar format with live speaker Q&A.

Participants also can interact with speakers by submitting questions and participating in live polls pushed out during the presentations.

Exhibitor Information & Networking
This year the trade show is virtual too! Instead of walking the show floor to connect, exhibitors will reach out to attendees in advance with introductory information on a number of valuable products and services. During CEC, exhibitors will be available to chat in-platform and their profiles and product information will be available in the exhibitor section. 

Miss the trade show floor swag? Register early to receive a box full of branded swag delivered to your door! Limited boxes are available…register as soon as possible! 

Connect, engage and win!
The CEC platform can track each attendee’s “engagement score,” which goes up each time you watch a live speaker, chat with another attendee, or simply view the agenda, read a speaker profile or engage in any way available on the platform. CEC attendees with the highest engagement scores can win up to $250 in prizes from the NGFA – so get clicking!
