Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit is the premier conference for Global Agribusiness industry executives to meet to review current trends, issues and opportunities. The Summit is a unique forum which brings together commodity buyers and sellers with the goal of facilitating commercial activity. The summit is also an event where investors who have not been an active participant in the agribusiness supply chain are able to meet leading industry executives.
American Meat Institute
We in the meat industry try to speak with a cross-sector of agricultural commodities all the time because we use so many of those commodities in our production cycles that it’s important for us to educate others as to what’s happening in our industry

I really enjoyed OGTS. Good content, good location, good networking. Speakers were good overall, especially the last keynote as we certainly want to be aware of what’s going on outside our region and I am personally very interested in international ag.
Jilin Grain Group
As a soybean and feed ingredient buyer for the Chinese market, I am always pleased to attend the OGTS to network with new businesses and meet old friends in all aspects of the agriculture industry. HighQuest always puts on a great conference with insightful speakers who are in tune with the current markets. I would recommend this event to all members of the industry.
Ben Eisenhart, Gavilon
It’s a great conference with valuable attendees on both the Domestic and International side of business. A good place to connect with old and new business domestically and abroad and touch base about current issues affecting our markets.
Illinois Soybean Association
It’s a good place to network and expand our presence in the marketplace. We have access to all the key players in the transportation, logistics and infrastructure industries. We’ve been doing this for three years, and there has been superb turnouts every year.
Tom Kowalski Kellogg’s North America
A terrific event that consistently identifies and brings in top quality speakers, both in U.S. and abroad, providing a thorough examination of the opportunities and issues in the Oilseed and Grain Trade space. It’s a great place to network with likeminded professionals and experts across the supply chain in the agricultural commodity area. I always walk away better informed with new insights to help drive our risk management and procurement strategies.This summit is a must-attend every year!
State of Minnesota
Nearly 50% of our soybeans go out as an exported product, so it’s important to be able to maintain relationships, build relationships and that eventually ends in market opportunity for our farmers.
Mizuho Bank, Ltd
I found the Summit very enlightening and just as important a productive way to network. I greatly appreciate the work that your organization has performed.
Dave Brown, Mondelēz International
I find HighQuest’s OGTS to be the right balance of market related content, industry trend presentations, and opportunities to connect with key business partners. I also personally enjoy this forum, as it allows me the chance to reconnect with those I’ve either worked with or done business with throughout my career.
Kurt Collins, RSCS
I was very pleased with the connection with Informa Economics as this provides some great content for the outlook sessions. I heard a lot of favorable feedback about the facilities as many attendees liked the proximity of the meeting rooms to the hotel as well as to local restaurants.

This year OGTS 2016 will be my seventh event with HighQuest Partners!.. Very much looking forward to it.. Every event has added new connections, new knowledge, new partners, new clients and further new friends to my world… I have also had a chance to exhibit and speak at OGTS 2014 & 2015 events. It was a great opportunity to present our company and services to the industry members which brought back amazing results.
