The Seed Association of the Americas (SAA), in collaboration with the Uruguayan Chamber of Seeds (CUS) and the Uruguayan Plant Breeders Association (URUPOV) is pleased to invite you to the 4th. Seed Congress of the Americas. This year's meeting will be held in Punta del Este, Uruguay, a city of impeccable infrastructure and interesting activities.

The meeting presents a great opportunity for seed companies and associated businesses to get together and discuss topics they have in common in our growing industry, to establish new business, and of course, to reunite with friends and colleagues.

The motto of the meeting is “Promoting the Seed Business in the Americas” and the principal focus is on Trade and Regulations. The agenda addresses the main burning issues that the industry is facing today: Intellectual Property, Biotechnology, Phytosanitary and Seed Treatment.

As in the past, we have organized the classic Trading Floor where business with colleagues can be discussed in total comfort.

This meeting, which takes place every two years, and brings together the leading seed companies, has become one of the most important in the Americas. It is an opportunity to congregate, generate new business, promote your products and become aware of relevant information and the latest novelties concerning the key topics to the industry and government.

The Congress will take place from September 3-5 of 2013, at the Conrad Punta del Este Resort & Casino , Punta del Este, Uruguay.

We hope to see you soon in Punta!

With my best regards,

Mr. Jerry Monk
SAA President
