The International Grains Council (IGC) wishes to thank all of our valued speakers, sponsors, delegates and guests for making the event a great success and a truly global affair.
We appreciate your participation and look forward to welcoming you to the next conference, scheduled for 11 – 12 June 2019. As the IGC will be celebrating the 70th anniversary of the Grains Trade Convention that year, the 2019 conference promises to be a momentous occasion and we sincerely hope that you can join us once again in London.
The 27th IGC International Grains Conference takes place on 19 - 20 June 2018 at the Queen Elizabeth II Centre, London. Now extended to a second day, the event offers enhanced opportunities to derive invaluable market insight and connect with other prominent industry professionals.
With around 300 participants expected to attend, the IGC Conference remains the industry’s must-attend event, bringing together participants from across the global grains and oilseeds supply chain, spanning producers, exporters, traders, brokers, processors, trade associations, inspection services, shipping companies and policymakers.
Under a market-leading agenda, international speakers will provide their perspectives on a range of key topics, notably prospects for global grains and oilseeds supplies – and their potential market impact – including the latest developments in Russia, China and Brazil. Amid IGC’s tentative projections for record trade in the main commodities during 2018/19, how will markets deal with expanding demand given a range of logistical and other challenges?
Other sessions will address the role of innovative new technologies for crop monitoring, robotic farming and storage, as well as the primary infrastructure challenges facing the world’s grains and oilseeds economies against the backdrop of expanding world trade flows.
Three commodity workshops will be held on the morning of 20 June, in which stakeholders will have an opportunity to share views and engage in direct discussion with market experts. These unique and interactive workshops will encompass the entire grains, oilseeds and rice value chains.
Simultaneous interpretation is available in Arabic, English, French, Mandarin, Russian and Spanish.
