Congress

It is our pleasure to inform you that the 2018 Agbiz Congress will be held on 7-8 June 2018 at the Boardwalk International Convention Centre in Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape.  

Congress theme:  Uncertainty creates opportunity

The Agbiz Congress is one of the major events on the food, feed, fibre and wine sectors’ agenda in South Africa. We anticipate attracting 400 delegates to the 2018 congress, which will feature presentations and discussion panels from local and international speakers, as well as a student case competition and two social events.

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.

View our 2016 Agbiz Congress report to see what was covered.
