Pinguino Events Partners American Soybean Association International Marketing for New Conference

Monday, April 16th, 2007

Singapore, April 11, 2007 – Pinguino Events is proud to announce a new collaboration with the American Soybean Association International Marketing (ASA-IM) to organize a conference for the grains industry. Entitled “Grain Shipping 2007,� this inaugural conference will be held at the Raffles Hotel from 28-29 June 2007.

Poised to address the issues faced by both dry bulk traders and shippers to give audiences a balanced view of the business, the conference is themed “The Business of Moving Grain – Grasp the Challenges, Manage the Risks, Gain an Edge.� Grain Shipping 2007 is a rare opportunity for delegates to converge in one convenient location and learn firsthand about each other’s business. Grains and shipping conferences are traditionally closed-door affairs and held exclusive of each other. This partnership is therefore an exceptional occasion for decision-makers from the different industries to gain insights into each other’s world.

“We were approached after our inaugural conference for small tankers players last year. We are excited about this new collaboration as we believe that this is in line with our vision of creating conferences with a difference whilst utilizing our expertise in shipping and maritime.� remarked Ng Ee Ping, Business Development Manager at Pinguino Events.

Continued Timothy Loh, Marketing Director at ASA-IM, “I was impressed by Pinguino Events’ dedication to well-researched, industry-specific topics which were timely and relevant. Much attention was also paid to branding and positioning of the conference. The final outcome of that conference, the exclusive turnout and excitement of the event is testament to their strategy. I am confident that Grain Shipping 2007 will achieve the same positive buzz if not better!�
