UniMerchants Academy

is a series of lectures and workshops addressed to companies operating on the cereal market. It is also a meeting place of the crème de la crème of the agricultural industry.

Synergy

There are 30 participants who are representatives of the industry; it is a unique opportunity to establish business contacts, broaden our knowledge together, as well as look for new and better solutions.

Theory and practice

Fundamental issues regarding all participants, manufacturers, traders, and processing companies in the cereal market are addressed during lectures.

Experience

The UniMerchants Group has been operating in the market since 2010. From the very beginning, we have participated in talks with cereal market companies, and now we would like to share the knowledge with you.

The Conference gathers numerous representatives from the agricultural sector. All participants understand the importance of management for a company’s effective development. The Conference is a great opportunity to meet extraordinary people who share the need for development and gaining new experience. This is an occasion to build firm relations, aimed at achieving shared business goals.

This UniMerchants Academy Summit looks at the changes coming at the agricultural industry from trading, digitalisation and climate change.  The wind of change is blowing – what will be the impact?

This time, the Unimerchants Academy will visit Hamburg, the city of merchants, with the harbor that never sleeps and the historic Speicherstadt where the grain traders had their storage.  One of the attractions of the Summit 2019 is a boat trip and dinner on the Elb river to see Hamburg from the water side.
