COVID-19 Causes Rice Market & Technology Convention in Panama Postponement

After closely monitoring the developments, the 2020 Rice Market & Technology Convention scheduled to take place in Panama, May 19-21 was postponed due to the worldwide spread of COVID-19. The new dates will not be announced until conditions are safe for everyone at home and abroad.

We are all learning what is really “essential” and certainly rice is on that list as evidenced by the increased demand. This makes our international convention even more important. Rice farmers, rice millers and the allied businesses from throughout the world are essential in feeding our communities worldwide.

We thank you for your support and participation over the years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, your families, loved ones and citizens during this crisis. Working together, the world will defeat this virus.

We will continue to monitor progress and keep you informed as to potential new dates. The USRPA office will remain closed for the foreseeable future but staff continues to work from home. Please let us hear from you – you can send your comments and/or questions directly to us at

Sincerely Yours,

US Rice Producers Association
