ANR Communications Events Management

ANR Event Services is the event management, consulting and online registration resource hub for the Michigan State University College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, AgBio Research and Michigan State University Extension. The ANR Event Services team provides all the tools and information necessary to create successful events, from ideas and guidance, to comprehensive event planning and management.

Services range from online registration through the Events Management System (created and designed in-house to serve the specific needs of educators) to full event planning for local, regional and international conferences and events. Understanding the diverse needs of faculty, research scientists, staff and educators from the MSUE Institutes; Greening Michigan, Agriculture and Agribusiness; Children and Youth; and Health and Nutrition when planning events and conferences is our strength.

By using ANR Event Services, you will be able to focus on your work as we take on the organization details associated with event planning. Simple event planning includes budgeting, establishing event dates, selecting and reserving the event site, coordinating transportation and parking, as well as handling participant registration. More complex planning includes full conference or event planning on campus or off. In addition to planning conferences and events, ANR Event Services is the organizing team for ANR Week, Agriculture Innovations and Fall Extension Conference. Other large scale events we have produced include the Great Lakes Regional Dairy Conference, Master Gardener College and the Great Lakes Barley and Hops Conference.

With everything from an online registration system (for use by CANR, AgBio Research and MSUE faculty and staff only) to downloadable templates, our goal is to provide you with the resources needed for planning an event that is seamless and successful.
