WHARTON, Texas -The Gathering Livestock World Conference is set to be held April 17-19, 2016, in Oklahoma City, Okla. Established in 2013, The Gathering Conference is the premier event for those interested in agricultural marketing and photography.

Additionally, the opportunity to network with other industry professionals who share a passion for design and communications enhances the experience.
