Why sponsor?

The Agbiz Congress 2021 will bring together more than 400 stakeholders – including 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 agri-food industry. The congress offers you the opportunity to connect with, and showcase your company to this large and diverse audience. Participating as a sponsor will provide you with the opportunity to deliver your message directly to your key stakeholders and demonstrate your support and products to the agri-food industry.

Kindly contact Karen Grobler at Agbiz for more information on sponsorships - karen@agbiz.co.za.
