Meeting events will take place at the Hilton DoubleTree Philadelphia Center City, located on the Avenue of the Arts in the heart of Philadelphia. 

This year’s conference features many opportunities to interact and learn. Invited keynote presentations will include Pol Antras of Harvard University, Kevin Volpp of University of Pennsylvania, Joseph Price of Brigham Young University and Marc Bellemare of University of Minnesota. In addition the program will feature selected paper sessions, a poster session, discussion symposia, and workshop sessions.

The Annual Meeting will begin with an informal opening reception at the DoubleTree Center City on Sunday evening poolside; the academic program will follow on Monday and Tuesday. We encourage participation from academic, public, and private sector economists interested in agricultural, environmental, or resource issues; and welcome professionals, faculty, and graduate students.
