ABOUT THE SUMMIT

DATES : 11 - 12 AUGUST 2014


The AgriBizniz Summit 2013 took place 15 and 16 August, and was a new initiative falling under the umbrella of the established African Farmers Workshop and Expo. This two day conference provided delegates, captains of industry, executives, academics and observers within the agribusiness value chain with an opportunity to engage, debate and network on critical issues within the sector.


The programme was a mixture of high-level panel discussions, with a unique combination of commercial leaders, government input and agri-finance, and ground-breaking presentations from those in the forefront of agri-development .


The Summit was predominantly marketed via Moshate Media’s existing relationships within the agricultural arena which had been created by the development of the African Farmers Workshop and Expo. That said coverage secured within BizCommunity, the Mail and Guardian and Business Day alos gave the Summit a substantial presence.
