Registration for the U.S. Grains Council’s 2011 International Marketing Conference & Annual Membership Meeting is now available. The meeting will take place Feb. 6-10, 2011, at the Hotel InterContinental in New Orleans. 

This year’s meeting, themed “The Year of Competitiveness: Addressing Infrastructure Challenges,” will focus on emerging global demand and the United States’ continued ability to be the world’s most reliable supplier of grains.

The meeting will feature expert industry speakers, tours and opportunities to reconnect with Council members. The Council’s international directors will also be in attendance and available to answer questions about the U.S. market status in countries around the world. 

As you make plans to attend, the Council encourages your participation in the tour of the ZEN-NOH Grain Corporation Elevator, scheduled for the morning of Feb. 10. This tour is included in the conference registration and is an additional event following the typical meeting schedule. Transportation to the elevator will be provided and guests are welcome to attend at no additional charge.
