North Dakota, Wisconsin Soybean Boards see value in sponsoring the 2019 GTE conference
The U.S. SOY Global Trade Exchange and Specialty Grains Conference (GTE) is approaching quickly and it could not happen without the support it receives from other businesses, companies and organizations. Five U.S. Qualified State Soybean Boards (QSSBs) are supporting this year’s conference, including the North Dakota Soybean Council (NDSC) and Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board.
NDSC is one of this year’s platinum sponsors. They have been sponsoring the conference for over five years, ultimately seeing this conference as an opportunity for farmer leaders to meet with international customers and connect with exporters.
“The networking opportunities that the GTE continues to provide year in and year out are vital to promoting the equality of U.S. soy,” says Austin Langley, NDSC vice chair and market development committee chair. “GTE is an opportunity to show how dedicated the U.S. soybean industry is to its customers on providing the best product in the world.”
The second QSSB sponsoring the conference is the Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board, an original sponsor of the annual event, and currently a gold sponsor.
“GTE is a very important program,” says Bob Karls of Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board. “The Wisconsin Soybean Marketing Board feels it is an excellent opportunity to bring buyers and sellers together to showcase the U.S. soybean industry to our international customers.”
