Mar. 14: The National Corn Growers Association announced today that the early registration period for 2012 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference has been extended by one week and will now close on Friday, April 6. The biennual event will be held June 4-6 in Indianapolis. With a theme of “Back to the Grind,” CUTC will feature the cutting-edge technologies and new uses that continually improve and dynamically change the corn industry.
“The deadline extension means that more attendees will have access to the valuable savings that early registration offers,” said NCGA Research and Business Development Action Team Chair DeVonna Zeug. “CUTC remains at the forefront of technology, fostering innovative ideas and important networking connections necessary to move the industry forward.”
The 2012 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference adds a third tier of presentation options offering participants information on and analysis of the latest on mycotoxin research. These new offerings have been included to complement work on the Aflatoxin Mitigation Center of Excellence, which continues to emphasize the importance of developing methods to mitigate and control mycotoxin development in all phases of production and processing.
Increasingly recognized as an important industry networking event, CUTC offers attendees the chance to meet hundreds of valuable business contacts, identify potential new customers and learn how new technologies will enhance the value of corn. CUTC poster presentations will again provide an ideal showcase for the latest research and present students with a challenging competition.
CUTC will be held at the Westin Indianapolis Hotel in downtown Indianapolis. Visit www.corntechconf.org for updates as additional information becomes available. For information on discounted group room rates available for reservations completed by May 14, click here.
