SINGAPORE — The Australian Grains Industry Conference (AGIC) announced on Dec. 4 that it is expanding offshore, with plans to hold regular overseas events in addition to the annual conference in Australia.
AGIC Singapore 2014 is the first event and will be March 10, 2014.
“This is an exciting development and we’re encouraging all those involved in the grains industry to participate and to let their customers in Asia know about the event,” said Peter Reading, chairman of Grain Trade Australia (GTA), one of the hosts of AGIC along with the Australian Oilseeds Federation and Pulse Australia. “AGIC Singapore 2014 will be a one day seminar with presentations from high caliber presenters and interactive panel sessions, followed by a cocktail networking function.
“It will provide customers of Australian grain, and those involved in marketing, logistics, financing, risk management and other support services, with an update on the Australian crop and Australian grain industry developments.”
The Singapore program will have a focus on wheat, feed grains and canola, providing access to the latest information on crop outlooks, quality profiles, innovations and trends.
