Registration is now open for the U.S. Grains Council's (USGC) 14th International Marketing Conference and 57th Annual Membership Meeting, scheduled to take place in Panama City, Panama, from Feb. 13 to 15, 2017.
This meeting is members' annual chance to meet face-to-face with USGC's international directors who work tirelessly to develop critical markets, dismantle trade barriers and serve U.S. grain producers and their customers overseas.
At the meeting, USGC Advisory Teams (A-Teams) will review the Council's Unified Export Strategy (UES) and help set direction and priorities for the year ahead. Sectors will meet to discuss issues of importance specifically for corn, barley and sorghum producers as well as agribusinesses and general farm organizations. Additionally, attendees will have the opportunity to tour the new Agua Clara locks on the Atlantic side of the Canal.
All potential attendees are encouraged to make plans early to join more than 200 of their colleagues in Panama City, Panama, including by registering for the meeting, making hotel reservations and ensuring their passports are up to date.
