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.
Latin American Grain Buyers to Strengthen Ties with U.S. Suppliers at Export Exchange 2014
WASHINGTON, D.C., Sept. 26, 2014 – Grain buyers and end-users participating in four trade teams from Latin America will be among the 180 international participants at Export Exchange 2014, scheduled for Oct. 20 to 22 in Seattle, Washington.
Due to proximity and long-standing trade relationships with the United States, Latin America is one of the largest export regions for U.S. grains and co-products. In the 2013/2014 marketing year, Latin America accounted for roughly 42 percent of the U.S. corn export market, as well as 16 percent of U.S. distiller's dried grains with solubles (DDGS) exports this marketing year through July. Buyers and end-users are eager to grow their relationships with U.S. suppliers and agribusinesses.
