Once the GFIA GLOBAL, the largest agriculture event in the Middle East, has recently been held in in Abu Dhabi (20-21 March 2017), it is time to think in GFIA EUROPE, to be held in 9-10 May 2017, Utrecht, the Netherlands.
The European edition of the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture will host the Agtech Leaders Summit, to support government, industry and science as hundreds of experts convene to find new ways to ensure sufficient, competitive, safe, and sustainable food production.
Three things make GFIA unique in Europe:
- It is the only event dedicated to showcasing innovations in sustainable agriculture across all types of food production.
- From farm to fork, GFIA brings together stakeholders right along the value chain to facilitate collaboration at large.
- Using GFIA’s global network of 40+ partners, a major component of the audience will come from the emerging markets of Africa and Asia.
GFIA was launched in 2014 at the invitation of the Abu Dhabi government, and leveraged partnerships with 40 powerful organisations including the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the World Bank, that wanted a platform to show the world how technology gives us the only real chance of feeding nine billion people without destroying the environment.
GFIA not only is a forum for stakeholders to discuss policy, strategy and solutions for a food secure future, but hosts a large exhibition where suppliers can meet thousands of farmers and procurement managers right along the value chain.
These are the reasons why we feel so proud of taking an active rol in the Conference. Carlos Piñeiro is one of the speakers that will participate. Carlos will contribute to the farmers panel, with other farmers and food producers from different sectors across Europe, that will give an inside look into how ag tech benefits their business.
