2020 Outlook Conference Cancelled 

Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the USA Rice Board of Directors voted unanimously to cancel the 2020 USA Rice Outlook Conference scheduled for December 9-11, in Austin, Texas.  Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, families, and the community at-large was paramount in the decision.

Thank you for your support of the USA Rice Outlook Conference over the years.  The 2021 conference is scheduled for December 5-7 in New Orleans, Louisiana.  We look forward to a strong conference next year and reuniting with our colleagues and friends in the rice industry.
