WORLD RICE CONFERENCE 2022

15-17 November 2022

2PM to 5PM – PRE-REGISTRATION AND ARRIVAL OF DELEGATES 

Pre-register yourself, so you register, take care of formalities and arm yourself with the welcome badge that gives you access to all of the event’s activities, from social gatherings to lunches and the plenary sessions over the course of the event. This is how the door to the next 3-days of experiences and interaction with the global rice industry and participants beins.

6PM to 8PM – PRE-EVENT NETWORKING RECEPTION:

Networking is the hallmark of TRT’s global rice event. The best opportunity to meet peers, renew friendships and alliances and the best vantage point to see who is in attendance in a friendly, social environment.

This is the first opportunity to interact with all of the delegates in attendance. A MUST ATTEND event, especially after nearly two years from our last physical event.
