03/06/2016: IGC Grains Conference 2016

The IGC Grains Conference is less than two weeks away, with peer-to-peer interaction, strategy planning for the year ahead, and a chance to make some great business leads - it is time to book your ticket!

In its 25th year, this one of a kind event will be held on the 14 June 2016 at The Jumeirah Carlton Hotel, London, with a Welcome Reception at the Institute of Directors on 13 June 2016.

With increases in world grains and oilseeds production outpacing gains in demand, global stocks have spiked to near 30-year peaks, pressuring export prices to multi-year lows. In addition to the new supply and demand realities, activity is also being shaped by fluctuations in external markets, including currencies, as well as climate change and latest trade policy developments.

For insights into these key issues and much more, join delegates from across the globe at the 25th IGC Grains Conference in London, which will bring traders and policymakers together at a truly international forum – all of our presentations are interpreted simultaneously in six different languages.

As well as presentations from some of the industry’s leading figures, the Conference provides unrivalled opportunities to network and build relationships with other agri-business professionals. So join us to hear the latest in the industry, network, and create lasting relationships.

Our provisional programme is split into three sessions, with an additional section of Special Presentations on ‘The impact of external factors on production and trade’ by Dr. Corey Cherr, Head of Agriculture and Weather Research and Forecasts, Lanworth at Thomson Reuters, USA, and Dr. Rory Deverell, Senior Commodity Risk Manager, INTL-FCStone, Ireland.

Some of the issues to be assessed include, the current market situation, prospects for supply and demand, and the latest developments in trade and logistics, climate change and its possible consequences for global production and trade in grains, rice and oilseeds, the impact of currency volatility in the global grains economy, evolving trade policy, including implications for major importers and exporters of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).
