BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, U.S. — HighQuest Partners, host of the annual Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit announced on March 5 that its October conference will include participation from Informa Economics Group, the prestigious agri-research company based in Memphis, Tennessee, U.S.

Pertinent topics addressed at Informa Economics’ previously held Annual Fall Outlook Conferences, such as the overview on global feed and grains, the management and monetization of scarce water resources, and highlights of the global supply/demand situations, are already integrated into the content planned for the Summit, which will be Oct.  7-9, at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.

A special pre-event program will be added on Oct. 7, to address topics that would have been presented at Informa’s Annual Livestock, Meat, Poultry and Dairy Spring Conference. All registered attendees of the Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit are invited to participate in this program at no additional charge.

“Participation from Informa Economics Group’s exceptional team will only serve to enhance our already rich content with more comprehensive presentations and knowledge sharing for our Summit attendees,” said Greg Mellinger, president and chief executive officer of HighQuest Partners. “Additionally, the inclusion of Informa event attendees at the Summit will greatly increase the networking and business opportunities on a global scale.”

The Summit, now in its ninth year, is the largest annual industry event that convenes buyers, sellers, and global leaders in the oilseed and feed grains sector. Delegates will have the opportunity to share the latest information on the oilseed and feed grains markets and network with their peers and with existing and potential new clients in order to broaden their competitive edge. Attendees hail from around the world – the 2013 event in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S., included over 75 exhibitors and hosted nearly 650 attendees from 30 U.S. states and 25 countries.
