St. Louis, MO – AgServe.com announced today an extension of the early-registration rate through February 24 for the Agriculture Outlook Summit to be held in St. Louis this March.
The Sheraton Westport Plaza Hotel agreed to expand space as-available for the AgServe Agriculture Outlook Summit allowing for more participants at the March 9 event.
“Flexibility with the meeting facilities provides us an opportunity to expand the marketing of this event,” said Dr. Sam Funk, CEO and Executive Economist for AgServe. “While expanding the invitation, we are also extending the early-registration period at the lower rate of $400 until February 24, 2017. We will look to accommodate registrations beyond that day, but they are not guaranteed and will be at the higher rates.”
Dr. Funk cited the extended commodity forecast period as one of the advantages for attendees at the AgServe outlook event. “With an outlook through 2018 highlighting factors to watch along the way – we will deliver timely information with a long shelf-life,” he said.
Bringing together nationally known speakers that have headlined major outlook events and been in the middle of relevant action, AgServe is offering a powerful one-day agriculture outlook.
“With Dr. Scott Brown we have an authority on meat, poultry, and dairy on the day’s program,” said Funk. “Dr. Paul Kindinger is uniquely qualified as a former USDA Director of Public Affairs and Special Advisor to a past U.S. Secretary of Agriculture to provide insights on the regulatory and administrative climate of the new Trump Administration.”
Dr. Funk will present the oilseed, vegetable oil and protein outlooks. As the former Chief Economist for the United Soybean Board, Dr. Funk is pleased to welcome a colleague from South America to provide attendees an insider perspective on Brazil and Argentina. Mr. Pablo Adreani, founder of AgriPAC Consultants in Argentina, a former trader for Cargill Argentina, founding partner of the Argentine Biofuels Association and the Argentine Corn Association, brings great experience and knowledge to this event. As a consultant for the United Soybean Board and the U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC), Pablo understands the dynamics of South American agriculture on U.S. producers and agribusinesses.
Mr. Dan Manternach, one of Dr. Funk’s colleagues from his Doane Advisory Services time and a leading agriculture analyst and speaker, will present the grains outlook. Dan will also address inflation, interest rates, and FOREX volatility.
This event is geared for those who will benefit from insights and projections of U.S. and global crop, livestock, and poultry production and markets.
