USAPEEC members laud Gulfood show

February 24, 2020

USAPEEC members who attended Gulfood 2020 in Dubai last week called the event a huge success, noting that the quality of the buyers this year was excellent.

USAPEEC President Jim Sumner said, “We’ve been exhibiting at this show for over 20 years now and it appears to have become our top show in the number of exhibitors and visitors.”

Thanks to funding from the Indiana Soybean Alliance and the Illinois Soybean Association, USAPEEC was able to build an eye-catching pavilion that included three conference rooms on the upper-deck, which served as a central meeting place for exhibitors,

importers, and even government officials who utilized the upstairs lounge area and meeting areas to their full capacity throughout the week.

U.S. Under Secretary of Agriculture for Trade and Foreign Agricultural Affairs Ted McKinney and the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) Dubai team visited the pavilion to meet with USAPEEC and its members and to discuss trade issues.
