This year, the African Agri Investment Indaba will be co-located with the Agri Trade Congress Africa, making this platform the largest trade and investment gathering in agriculture on the African continent.

The new format still allows for two separate conference streams but takes advantage of having 1200+ high level delegates in combined matchmaking, exhibition and networking sessions with a focus on the entire value chain from farmer to retailer.

Join us on 27 – 28 November 2018 at the CTICC in Cape Town, South Africa.
