The 27th International Sweetener Symposium is scheduled for July 30 to August 4, 2010, at the Vail Marriott
Mountain Resort & Spa in Vail, Colo. This popular event is sponsored by theAmerican Sugar Alliance.
Upheaval in the global financial sector, integration of the U.S. and Mexican sugar markets, and new supply and demand realities have made for fascinating times for the world sugar economy. Where do we go from here? Can U.S. and Mexican sugar producers find financing and some promise of market stability? Can industrial buyers of sugar depend on ample supplies? Are the sugar policies of both countries up to the test of full U.S.-Mexican market integration? Do a WTO Doha Round agreement or other trade deals presage threat orbenefit for sugar producers in the North American and elsewhere?
These questions and others will be explored by panels of industry experts and key policy makers.
Traditionally, about 400 people attend the symposium to hear about significant and timely issues affecting the industry and to network with their sweetener industry colleagues. The schedule allows free time every afternoon to enhance industry relations.
