The 2018 Agbiz Congress will be held on 7-8 June 2018 at the Boardwalk International Convention Centre in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape. This prestigious congress is one of the major events on the food, fibre and beverage sectors’ agenda of South Africa and a premier agribusiness networking opportunity where business leaders and policy makers meet to shape the future of the broader South African agro-food industry.
CEOs, senior management and board members, as well as key delegates from government, producer organisations, processors, academia and various other major role-players in the southern African agriculture and agro-food industry are expected to attend the congress.
A highlight for this year’s congress is that President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the delegates as keynote speaker. Furthermore, various top international and local experts will address key issues such as the global agro-food environment we operate in, the global and local political economy, and environmental challenges the sectors face. The key issues of land and water reform confronting South Africa and its agriculture system, and the impact technology will have on the competitiveness of South Africa’s industries will be addressed. See the full programme here.
The Congress comprises an open conference style session that will run from the morning of 7 June until 8 June at 11:00. After the congress, Agbiz members will participate in a closed Annual General Meeting. – Press release
