SINGAPORE — Global Grain Asia is moving to a virtual platform as the previously planned conference was canceled due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The event focused on grain trade is set to be hosted July 9-10 and will be free to attend.

The virtual platform will allow attendees to view the business presentations and panels either live or on demand, as well as face-to-face networking through video chat and virtual roundtables.

The event will be a chance for the grain industry to come together and discuss topics ranging from:

  • What does the 'Next Normal' look like — a market outlook taking into account COVID-19, trade wars and the shift in consumption patterns
  • How trading houses’ strategies are adapting to market disruptions
  • How African swine fever is impacting demand for grain and how the industry can endure it
  • The effect of new demand patterns on the flour and feed industries
  • What are the new prospects and potential new markets for Latin American traders.
