The Alltech 28th Annual International Symposium, held May 20 - 23, 2012, in Lexington, Ky., was a venue for close to 3,000 delegates from around the world to discuss the future of agriculture and the challenge of feeding 9 billion people by 2050, as well as to explore the wide range of possible solutions to meet that challenge. While the 2012 Symposium is already "in the books," the experience lives on in the Alltech 28th International Symposium iBook, which is now publicly available through Apple's iBookstore and iTunes.

The Alltech Symposium iBook offers an inside look at the annual international event through a collection of photos, videos and articles. It is available as free download for the iPad through the iBookstore or through iTunes for computers.

"The Alltech Symposium is an exhilarating event filled with contagious energy and exciting new ideas - you really have to see it to believe it," said Catherine Keogh, Alltech's chief marketing officer. "This iBook is a great way for the delegates who attended to relive the experiences they had this year; and for anyone who couldn't attend, this is an opportunity to get a glimpse at what this international event was all about. The great thing about this format is that through the photos and video, the story of the event can really come alive."

The Alltech 28th Annual International Symposium was the forum for presentations by more than 170 industry experts in areas including aquaculture, beef, dairy, equine, food, information technology, legal, marketing, poultry, pig, pet and regulatory.

Additional coverage of the 2012 Alltech Symposium is available on Alltech's agriculture and science blog.

The 29th Annual Alltech International Symposium is scheduled for May 19-22, 2013 in Lexington, Ky.
