Come Explore the Argentina Grain Industry With GEAPS
There is strong interest in GEAPS’ grain industry operations field trip to Argentina, Oct. 28 - Nov. 2, 2012. Grain company executives have inquired about visiting the heart of Argentina’s grain industry and interacting with one of GEAPS’ closest international strategic alliances, APOSGRAN. You don’t want to miss this invaluable learning experience and an unparalleled opportunity to network with South American grain handling industry executives, operations professionals, and equipment and services providers. You will join GEAPS’ International President Bill Lyster, who will be traveling to Rosario, Argentina, to represent GEAPS at APOSGRAN’s annual conference and trade show, JORNATEC. Grain industry leaders from all over South America will attend the conference, providing an opportunity to network with grain industry leaders from countries including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay.
You will also take a boat tour of the Paraná River to visit an export facility that has one of the largest grain storage capacities in the world and a soybean processing capacity of 18,000 metric tons per day. You will also see various ports that are home to grain export facilities of Louis Dreyfus, Noble and Cargill. Participants will be responsible for making their own travel arrangements to and from Buenos Aires, which is the start-and end-point of the GEAPS delegation itinerary. GEAPS staff will provide a detailed in-country itinerary in advance – including site information/meeting points, restaurants, shopping, and facility tours. All ground transportation to and from Rosario and hotel accommodations in Rosario will be made in advance, as well.
