Get out your 2012 calendars and mark the date for just under a year from now to attend the next global event to help increase exports of ethanol co-products for livestock feed.

The last such event was held last year about this time in Chicago.

“Export Exchange 2010 was a huge success,” said Wendell Shauman, USGC chairman. “People from all around the world gathered in one central location to make deals and get information regarding these vital commodities. Business contacts made during the conference are still being used today.”

Export Exchange 2012 will be held Oct. 22-24 at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center. Additional information will be posted at www.exportexchange.org as it develops.
