NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Global AgInvesting Asia will open the door to connecting with some of the largest pension funds in the world and provide access to the most powerful players in the Japanese investing sector as it brings its premier event to Tokyo this year, 13-15 September at the Hilton Tokyo Odaiba.

Influential executives from across Asia and the U.S., particularly those who have attended this event in Singapore for the last five years, will be in Tokyo as well. Representatives from a prestigious list of companies worldwide are set to attend Global AgInvesting Asia. They include:
