This release was sent out to me today and wanted to pass it along.
Informa Economics and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) announced today that Informa will collocate a Market Outlook Forum at AG CONNECT Expo 2010, the new agricultural trade show slated for January 13-15, 2010 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. AG CONNECT Expo will showcase the latest innovations, products, services and technology in all agriculture sectors and offer access to leading worldwide industry experts.
Informa Economics Inc. is a world leader in broad-based domestic and international agricultural and commodity/product market research, analysis, evaluation and consulting. It is headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee. In conducting a Market Outlook Forum at the AG CONNECT Expo 2010, Informa will provide its fundamental supply, demand and price analysis for major agricultural commodities.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Informa to bring a market outlook forum to the new global agriculture trade show held in North America,” said Bruce Scherr, the CEO of Informa Economics. “We believe this will be a world-class event for all attendees, and that’s why we see the growing interest in AG CONNECT Expo. We believe this trade show will be a superb context for us to host a program highlighting the value of data to farmers, ranchers and agribusiness.”
In December 2008, it was announced that Agrievolution, the Second World Summit on Agricultural Machinery involving Ministry of Agriculture representatives and equipment associations from around the world, would be held in conjunction with AG CONNECT Expo 2010 in Orlando. Two weeks ago the Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association (FEMA) announced its endorsement of AG CONNECT Expo. FEMA represents primarily the privately-owned, specialized manufacturers of agricultural equipment.
Charlie O’Brien, AEM’s VP of Ag Services, said that Informa’s mission to be a vital force in the success of agriculture, food, energy and transportation interests around the world “dovetails perfectly with AG CONNECT Expo’s mission to be a global gathering place and forum for sharing agricultural ideas and management trends. We see great added value with the addition of Informa Economics at AG CONNECT Expo 2010.
