cmdtyExchange - The Global Agriculture Conference You Don't Want to Miss!

What does a grain originator, a procurement manager, a farmer, and a broker all have in common? They will all be at cmdtyExchange 2020, Barchart’s annual event taking play May 4-6 which highlights the hottest trends and latest innovations impacting the agricultural markets.

As a leading provider of commodity data and agribusiness solutions, we created cmdtyExchange to connect the different players within the agricultural space and to showcase the latest trends and advancements impacting the industry. We thought, what better place to host this event than Chicago, the home of commodity markets!

Similar to last year’s event, which was a huge success, cmdtyExchange 2020 will be an event you don’t want to miss. Don’t just take our word for it, after attending the 2019 event, the Director of Technology at Maplehurst Farms stated, “I would highly recommend cmdtyExchange to anyone involved in the ag industry. The speakers were terrific and to the point... plenty of takeaways with industry-leading panels. The atmosphere couldn't have been better and a lot of opportunities to personally interact with speakers and attendees."
