BOSTON, MASSACHUSETTS, U.S. — HighQuest Group announced on March 10 the 2015 dates for the 10th annual Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit and 4th annual Women in Agribusiness Summit, which will be co-located at the Hyatt Regency in Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S., during the week of Sept. 28.
The Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit, Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, will address key trends and developments in the global oilseed, animal protein and grain sectors. Last year’s Summit convened over 400 buyers and sellers of oilseed products, feed grains and food ingredients from 38 U.S. states and nearly 20 countries.
New this year are expanded networking opportunities due to a more fluid room layout; an agenda that addresses more animal protein topics; and a grand Oktoberfest-themed celebration in honor of the event’s 10th anniversary.
More than 35 industry experts from across the ag value chain will present at the Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit, presiding over both plenary and concurrent track sessions that highlight emerging trends in crop production, ag technologies, feed, food ingredients, transportation, risk management and more.
The 4th annual Women in Agribusiness Summit, taking place Sept. 28-30, will focus on the activities paramount to developing leaders, inspiring action and increasing industry knowledge.
Hundreds of women are expected to attend the event that is tailored for executives, management and those just starting out. The event will include network opportunities as well as the most current industry outlooks, and trends and strategies in an interactive and innovative forum.
Attendees also are invited to participate in action-directed conversations on the crucial need to recruit, retain and advance women in the industry.
