Keynote Speaker for 2023 MarkeTech + Agritourism & Adventure Travel Workshop

Join the GROW Nebraska Foundation and the Nebraska Tourism Agritourism as they join the Adventure Travel Workshop and MarkeTech 2023! Conference attendees will be able to experience an even better MarkeTech Conference this year on March 1 – 2, in Kearney, Nebraska at the Younes Conference Center. 

As part of the MarkeTech 2023 conference, keynote speaker Sarah Calhoun of Red Ants Pants will be speaking for the very first time in Nebraska. As an industry leader in both business and functional fashion, Calhoun will bring her passion for rural communities, working family farms and ranches, and advocating for women in leadership. 

Raised on a farm in Connecticut, Calhoun relocated to Montana and in 2006 created Red Ants Pants to provide working women with fit, function, and flatter. Red Ants Pants is based out of White Sulphu Springs and products are made in the USA. 

From Calhoun’s grit and determination she has been recognized with the following awards: 2012 National Women in Business Champion for the Small Business Administration, 2011 Entrepreneur of the Year for the State of Montana, and in 2018, Calhoun’s foundation festival, was named the Event of the Year by the Montana Office of Tourism and Business Development. She has since been inducted into Montana’s Business Hall of Fame. Calhoun and Red Ants Pants have been featured nationally in publications including Entrepreneur, National Geographic, Delta Sky, Country Woman, and Sunset. 

Calhoun will kick off MarkeTech 2023 with her keynote titled, “Present Day Pioneering.” 

Conference attendees will then have the opportunity to follow four different tracks including: Agritourism, Adventure Travel, Marketing and Social Media, and Business Growth and Resources. Attendees will be able to hear from local and regional experts in their fields and be able to hear how to develop scalable solutions. MarkeTech will also continue with the tradition of hosting panels of successful business leaders, social media and marketing specialists, ecommerce experts, and more! Calhoun will close the conference with an open question and answer session where conference attendees will be able to ask their most burning business questions. 

MarkeTech is a conference that provides all attendees with usable information to take back into their business, implement, and customize to fit their needs. Register today at
