Early registration discount for the 2018 Corn Utilization and Technology Conference (CUTC) ends this Friday April 13, at Midnight. The biennial event will be held June 4-6, 2018 at the Sheraton Westport Chalet Hotel in St. Louis, Missouri.
With a theme of “Increasing Efficiency Across the Supply Chain to Enable New Products,” the conference provides a great opportunity to showcase and learn about new technology and track the changes in new corn uses and relate technology made over the last two years.
This year’s planning committee, made up of industry experts, has developed a dynamic program with a focus on new uses with strong market expansion potential while continuing to advance long-term goals of improving quality and efficiency.
The hallmark of CUTC since 1987 is the goal of bringing leading innovators in the corn industry together for broad scientific exchange and well as very specific and targeted conversations related to research progress, processor needs and challenges and interaction with peers throughout the supply chain.

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.
