The Ag Media Summit You Cannot Miss

Sometimes it’s nice to toot your own horn, which is why we are not shy about letting everyone know that Grain Summit 2020 is going to be the leading global agriculture event taking place this year (toot, toot!). We still wanted to kick it up a gear though, so we thought, why not make the event even better by creating an exclusive event specifically for Ag Media? After all, Ag Media professionals are the ones hungry for reliable commodity data, news and weather that they can broadcast out to their audiences. And lucky for them, Barchart has everything they’re looking for, so we created an exclusive and FREE event to fill them in on how we can make their jobs easier with our tools. Are you an ag media professional? Register for free now.

The private Ag Media Roundtable and Lunch will be taking place on May 4th before the main event begins. What’s on the agenda? We’re glad you asked…

10:30am - 12:00pm | Registration, Networking and Lunch
Start the day off by building connections with other Ag Media professionals who are attending Grain Summit 2020. There will also be a handful of Barchart reps hanging around and will happily provide you with a demo of our cutting edge commodity trading software or show you how you can easily stream commodity market data in Excel.

12:00pm - 12:30pm | Market Update with Darin Newsom
Grain Market Expert Darin Newsom will kick-off the presentation portion of the event by providing attendees with a commodities market outlook. He’ll highlight the current state of the grain market and what he predicts will happen down the road in 2020.

12:30pm - 1:15pm | Roundtable Discussion
We’ll open the floor to attendees to discuss with one another what challenges and opportunities ag media professionals currently face in this day in age. What tools are lacking? What does ag media need more of? This roundtable will be an engaging tell-all for media attendees to share their insights, challenges, and ideas.

1:15pm - 2:00pm | Free Tools for Ag Media from cmdty by Barchart
Barchart will present attendees with an overview of the solutions we provide for Ag Media as well as give training on the free tools available to them through the cmdty Media Network. To top it off, attendees will be able to sign up for the cmdty Media Network on-the-spot and immediately reap all of the benefits that’s included with the free membership. If you can’t wait until May to learn about the tools we have available for Ag Media, check out our latest webinar on how to Engage Your Ag Media Audience or read our latest blog on Tools for Ag Media to Analyze Basis in Excel.

2:00pm - 4:00pm | Chicago Boat Tour
Who doesn’t love a beautiful day on the Chicago River in Spring? Attendees will enjoy a private boat tour of Chicago exploring the city’s architectural gems. Need we say more?

4:00pm - 6:00pm | Opening Reception at Barchart HQ
Enjoy a cocktail or craft beer while networking with other Grain Summit 2020 attendees. If you didn’t get a chance to take a demo earlier in the day, we’ll have stations set up throughout our office for you to use.

6:30pm - 8:30pm | Ag Media Private Dinner
End your day on a high note at a private dinner explicitly for Ag Media at a downtown Chicago restaurant. Let’s just say, we hope you enjoy steak…

As I’m sure you can tell, this Ag Media Summit is an event you don’t want to miss. What’s best of all? Not only is the Ag Media Summit on May 4th free to attend, but it also gives you access to the entire 3-day Grain Summit 2020 event. That means you’ll also have access to engaging panel discussions with industry experts, countless more opportunities for networking (did we mention Thursday evening features a Chicago Craft Brewery Reception?), plus so much more.
