The Russian Grain Union and the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies have joined forces to orchestrate the Black Sea Grain and Oilseeds 2023/2024 Conference, aiming to advance industry dialogue, innovation, and collaboration.

On September 14-15, 2023, the XXVIII International Conference ‘Black Sea Grain and Oilseeds 2023/2024’ will be held in Sochi, Krasnaya Polyana resort. Organized by the Russian Grain Union and the Institute for Agricultural Market Studies (IKAR), the conference promises to be a pivotal event in the industry calendar.

Sochi, chosen as the conference's venue, offers a compelling array of advantages. Firstly, the city has a high-class transport infrastructure that allows you to quickly move around the city and easily get to the right place to hold a business meeting and enjoy a pleasant vacation. Secondly, Sochi is famous for its unique climate. The picturesque area with sea breeze, sunny beaches and cool mountain slopes creates the perfect atmosphere for combining business with pleasure. Adding to Sochi's allure is its reputation for embracing Southern hospitality, extending a warm welcome to all attendees.


Traditionally the participants will be offered an exceptionally rich and relevant program. This event is a key industry event of the grain season and traditionally takes place when the contours of the new crop are already quite clear and market conditions and regulators' actions are still being formed.

 The conference will be attended by key representatives of the heads of the largest agricultural holdings, Russian and international trading companies, export terminals, banks and other responsible persons. It is expected that the conference, as in previous years, will be attended by 200-250 Russian and foreign guests.

Within the framework of the conference, the problems of legislative support and state regulation of the functioning of the Russian grain market, new trends in the development of the situation on the world grain and oilseed markets, grain quality in the new season, the course of sowing winter crops, crop estimates in the three Black Sea countries and many others will be considered. Russian will serve as the official language of communication throughout the conference.
