Barchart, a provider of data and analytics to the commodities industry, announced the launch of the cmdtyExchange Roadshow, a free conference series being held in five states across the Midwest this summer.
Taking place Aug. 26-30, the cmdtyExchange Roadshow will bring grain buyers, elevators/co-ops, processors, commodity professionals and industry experts together to gain insights and perspectives on the 2019 grain market and to share information on the latest data and tools used to manage physical grain buying.
In addition to learning about the tools and technology currently driving commodity markets, the program gives attendees an in-depth look at data, analytics and tools behind Barchart's cmdty product line, including an overview of Barchart's patent-pending county, growing region and state-based grain price and basis indexes.
"We're excited to take the cmdtyExchange conference on the road this summer and have the opportunity to connect with grain buyers and other agricultural professionals across the Midwest," Barchart chief executive officer Mark Haraburda said. "Technology and data are driving change in today's commodity markets, and we look forward to exploring these topics with the agricultural community and providing insight into how our cmdty product line can help ag professionals drive more value for their business."
In May, Barchart hosted the inaugural cmdtyExchange conference in Chicago, Ill., which brought together more than 300 agriculture and commodity professionals. The three-day event included panel discussions from industry-leading speakers and sponsors, presentations from emerging agricultural technology start-ups, multiple networking opportunities, as well as an in-depth look at the cmdty product line.
