SAN ANTONIO, TX – They say everything is bigger in Texas, and that goes for the 2017 USA Rice Outlook Conference too!  Valuable programming has been packed into each day with exciting speakers, educational sessions, and a bustling exhibit hall featuring The Rice Foundation Innovation Stage.

The Rice Foundation fosters innovation for the industry, so it is fitting that this year’s Innovation Stage was named for the organization.  Programming at The Rice Foundation Innovation Stage will start each day at 7:45 a.m.  The full schedule will be posted in the Outlook Conference Exhibit Hall, but attendees won’t want to miss presentations on Monday, December 10, from BASF Corporation, CMC Industrial Electronics, FrigorTec, Applied Digital, Inc. – Aquarius Farm Controls, Horizon Ag, CASEIH, Gowan USA, and Real McCoy Enterprises.

Tuesday’s schedule includes presenters from John Deere Company, Ray-Mont Logistics, Creed Rice, Central Life Sciences, Mike Harper, and IntelliFarms.

There will also be special short film screenings and a cooking demonstration from the USA Rice Mexico team.

“Our conference sponsors and exhibitors make this, the largest annual conference in North America dedicated to rice, possible, but I especially appreciate the exhibitors who share the latest innovations, technology, and services at The Rice Foundation Innovation Stage,” said USA Rice President & CEO Betsy Ward.  “These presentations really make a difference to the bottom line for our members.”
