RMTC 2024: Event Success Boosted by Diverse Speaker Lineup

June 21, 2024
Attendees at the recent Rice Market & Technology Convention enjoyed a series of impressive presentations that significantly contributed to the event's success. Economist Dennis DeLaughter's thought-provoking presentation on "What Could Possibly Go Wrong Now?" captured everyone's interest. V Subramanian from SS Rice News in SE Asia discussed how global markets have reacted and are still responding to export restrictions from India. Tiago Barata from SINDARROZ-Brazil faced a significant challenge in presenting the current market situation in Brazil after a historic flood disrupted the Western Hemisphere market the previous month. Various country reports provided timely insights into additional market issues concerning supply/demand, grain quality, and variety development.
The technology-focused presentations by several related industries showcased upcoming advancements and attracted a large audience to the exhibit area during coffee breaks.
