USSEC Encourages U.S. Exporter Participation in Davenport Event

The U.S. SOY Global Trade Exchange will be taking place in Davenport from September 16-18, and USSEC is encouraging U.S. exporters to participate.   Co-located with the Midwest Shippers Association annual conference and trade show, USSEC will be hosting over 200 international buyers of soybeans and soy products from 26 countries at the event.
The U.S. SOY Global Trade Exchange is a “non-profit” event organized solely by two non-profit organizations with the objective of facilitating trade and growing/enhancing U.S. exports.  Significant U.S. soy checkoff and FAS funds are being invested to bring the international customers to the event.  Unlike the many other agriculture related conferences that are organized and promoted by companies with a profit motive, rather than a U.S. trade promotion motive, this event is a low cost opportunity for American companies to meet with existing and potential customers in a setting specifically designed to promote the export of U.S. soy products.   

Key business development opportunities include:

  • 2013 USSEC Trade Team Invitational.   In the morning of September 16, U.S. companies will be conducting private meetings with representatives from the visiting trade teams.  Timeslots are filling up now!
  • Trade Show Booth Exhibitor Opportunities: On September 16 and 17, the evening receptions, breakfasts and lunches will be conducted in the Trade Show area to allow potential buyers to visit individual company booths and have private conversations to discuss business opportunities.  Please let us know if you would like to see the current list of exhibitors.
  • Event Participation:  We have arranged an impressive array of speakers that should provide stimulating educational opportunities interspersed with networking sessions.  Also, the Monday evening Mississippi dinner cruise will provide participants ample opportunity to connect.
