Furthermore, given the diversity, knowledge level and sheer numbers of the attendees I also found networking opportunities to be very rewarding. Given the growing global importance of Ukrainian grain production and exports and the strategic geographical location of this conference I suspect that players from around the world will attend upcoming events. With Conference Grain Ukraine there is now a way to tap into the “Real-on-the-ground situation” throughout the entire grain production to export process in the Ukraine.
