The AgriBusiness Forum is the largest pan-African AgriBusiness Forum held on African soil annually which aims at strengthening the Agri-Food sector in Africa, by encouraging partnerships, exchanging best practices and attracting investments. It is the right platform to discuss and present successful projects and business models. This years, the Forum will focus on  "The Agri-Food Sector: A Catalyst for Sustainable and Inclusive Growth in Africa”.

The Forum takes place annually and attracts over 400 agribusiness leaders and decision makers including private entities, financiers, donors, industrialists, SMEs, researchers, governments, international organisations, NGOs, and others from all over the world with a strong African presence. The forum is considered a key meeting point for those who wish to take part in Africa’s agro-food sector growth and for those who wish to invest in the private sector.   

Driven by the need to discuss best practices and timely issues concerning the sustainable development of Africa’s Agricultural and Agro Industrial Sectors, as well as the need to design, plan and discuss project planning and collaborations in African agribusiness, each edition of the forum revolves around a core theme that tackles the challenges and opportunities head on.

The Forum is made up of a combination of Plenary Sessions, Technical Workshops and Pre-arranged Business-to-business Meetings.
