Welcome to the Export Exchange 2014™ meeting information website.
More than 180 international buyers and end-users are expected Oct. 20-22, 2014, in Seattle, Washington – eager to meet and build relationships with more than 300 domestic suppliers in attendance – over two days of educational sessions and networking opportunities at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.
Held every two years by USGC and RFA, Export Exchange is the nation's premier international trade conference focused on the export of U.S. coarse grains and co-products. Last year's record-breaking event attracted buying teams from 33 countries, including all of the top U.S. international markets.
As the voice of U.S. farmers and agribusinesses, and a trusted ambassador for free and fair trade between U.S. agriculture and customers around the world, the U.S. Grains Council and Renewable Fuels Association believe that expansion of established export markets and development of new markets will drive the success of American agriculture for years to come.
Bullish Outlook for Feed Grains, Global Food Trade
WASHINGTON, D.C., Oct. 21, 2014 – The outlook is good for global agricultural producers and agricultural trade, according to Curtis Jones, the global director of economic analysis for Bunge Global Agribusiness, who spoke Tuesday to the 450 attendees of the Export Exchange 2014 conference in Seattle, Washington.
Delivering the keynote address, Jones said a rising population and rapidly growing incomes in the emerging economies will continue to support robust demand for feed grains and other agricultural products.
