EVENT NOTICE - 2013 Global U.S. Soy Trade Exchange

We are excited to notify you of USSEC's first Global U.S. Soy Trade Exchange, which will be co-located with Midwest Shippers 10th anniversary event in the Quad Cities.
Click here to access the event website.
This unique event will attract over 125 global buyers of commodity soybean, meal and food grade (IP beans, non-GMO, isolates, concentrates, SPC, etc.). Through USSEC's international regional offices, direct contact is being made to bring the most influential international buyers to the event from China, North Asia, Southeast Asia, Latin America, the Maghreb, Middle East and the Greater European region.
We invite our members to leverage this event by participating and sponsoring events that bring you closer to your international customers.   You should come ready to close deals in this commercial event for the export of U.S. soy. These customers ARE expecting that your company will be in a position to do business.
The event will feature:

  • Keynote speakers on current subjects of international and domestic customer interest, such as but not limited to: Global Soy and Grain Outlook; Free Trade Agreements; Sustainability, and the Value of U.S. Soybean Meal compared to other origin meals.
  • Time to program "one-on-one" business meetings with customers at the event.
  • Networking opportunities including dinner meetings.   Our international representatives can assist you in coordinating these meetings for the evening of September 15.  In the past, various exporters have coordinated separate dinners with international teams.

If you have questions, or if USSEC should direct this notice to someone else in your organization, please contact Greg Olwig (USSEC) at and/or Bruce Abbe (Midwest Shippers) at
