Export Exchange In KC Delayed To 2021
A conference geared toward connecting U.S. grains producers with export markets has been pushed back a year. The U.S. Grains Council, Renewable Fuels Association, Growth Energy, and other sponsors of Export Exchange announced Wednesday that the biennial event would be moved to October 6th through 8th, 2021, in the hopes that the coronavirus pandemic will have subsided by then. The exchange will still take place in downtown Kansas City at the new Loews convention hotel. More than 200 international purchasers and end-users of U.S. coarse grains and related products are expected to join an estimated 300 U.S. producers, agribusinesses and representatives at Export Exchange. In addition to business-to-business meetings and an exhibit hall, the conference addresses critical issues facing U.S. exports to build awareness of the benefits of U.S. corn, sorghum, dried distiller’s grains with solubles, and other products.
