Hybrid event format, for a few guests attending in person and with a live broadcast transmission

21st International DATAGRO Conference on Sugar and Ethanol 2021

Since 2001 DATAGRO has held its traditional International DATAGRO Conference on Sugar and Ethanol, an opportunity in which leaders of all links of the production chain, marketing and finance of the agribusiness sector meet to discuss and plan their future.


The 21st edition will have as central theme “On the Road to Sustainable Mobility” and will be held on the 25th & 26th of October, and will be delivered in a hybrid event format, for 150 guests attending in person and with a live broadcast content for those attending remotely.


The sugar-energy sector will be represented through its main stakeholders, and this will be an opportunity to discuss the continuity of its integration with the automotive, energy and environmental sectors.


Additional diversification routes, their growing environmental sustainability, investments in advanced motorizations and their role in mitigating global warming are some of the topics that will be discussed with experts on the eve of Glasgow’s COP26.


Costs and competitiveness, the challenge of growth, climate impacts, new sources of finance such as FIAGRO, and the valorization of ethanol as energy for transportation are some of the challenges and opportunities to be discussed.


Save the date for #DATAGROSP21.


We will be very honored with your participation.
