SGS recently hosted a booth at the Farm Chemicals International Trade Conference held in Miami, Florida. This is the first time we have participated in this event for the Americas and the contacts made were excellent. Many potential clients visited the booth with interests ranging from trade services and market research, to analytical services and field research.

Nearly 600 people from more than 30 countries attended the event. The exhibition hall hosted some 100 booths, with the majority presenting information on innovative crop inputs.

In conjunction with the activity in the exhibition hall, there were several presentations from renowned speakers. Covering topics as diverse as new market research, product registration in Brazil, an update on the US Farm Bill, regulatory trends affecting the Andean markets and trends in cultivation and crop inputs of the Black Sea markets, these speeches presented timely and important information relevant to the global agricultural economy.

SGS was the only company present promoting services related to field research. Promoting our field research and analytical capabilities to a wider audience enables the business to reach new clients who can benefit from our expertise on 5 continents.
