The eighth annual Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit, designed for worldwide commodity and ingredient buyers and sellers as well as related industry representatives, will be Oct. 21-23 in Minneapolis.

The second annual Women in Agribusiness Summit will be in conjunction with it Oct. 22-24.

Last year, the oilseed and grain event hosted more than 65 exhibitors and nearly 800 attendees from 38 states and 45 countries, according to a news release. This year, event organizers say they’re expecting more than 100 exhibitors and sponsors.

The summit will feature updated topics, including food safety and quality, new options for managing risks, and a panel discussion on sustainability in the global ag supply chain.

Because of increased interest, a fourth track has been added that examines changes in futures trading, including relevant legislative and regulatory trends and legal perspectives.

Carl Casale, president and chief executive officer of CHS Inc., Inver Grove Heights, Minn., will deliver the keynote address, titled “Staying Relevant in a Rapidly Changing World,” Oct. 22.

The Women in Agribusiness Summit has been expanded to two days from last year’s single day to allow for additional break-out sessions, in-depth question and answer sessions, and roundtable discussions.

Opening the sessions will be keynote speaker Ilene Gordon, chief executive officer of Ingredion Inc., a Westchester, Ill.-based manufacturer of food, beverage and industrial ingredients. She will share her experiences in “Journey to the Top: Lessons Learned.”

Gordon will be joined by Beth Ford, executive vice president and chief supply chain and operations officer at Land O’Lakes Inc., St. Paul, who will address “Agribusiness…A Great Growth Industry with Mission Value and Opportunity for Women.”
