International Yearly Conferences

Conference Advisory Committee

The following members are available to advise future IFAMA conference Chairs about their planning experiences and learnings.

IFAMA's annual conferences attract professionals from cross-disciplines who share common goals of improving the global food system. Participants include professionals from the ag sector, faculty from leading academic institutions, NGOs, government agencies, and students.  

IFAMA aims to enhance its members’ capacity to excel at the science and agricultural business management. Effective science-based decision-making is developed through discussions, informed debate, and careful deliberations among peers. Through these events, members discover the multidimensionality of their common issues, draw connections to broader themes and develop solutions which enhance collective competitiveness.

IFAMA conferences always include a scientific research Symposium, a Forum which features hot- topic discussions from high-level speakers, roundtable discussions, case study workshops and networking.

IFAMA has the distinction of delivering the only Global Student Case Competition exclusively focused on agribusiness. Early career professionals and students are a vital part of the organization. We recognize the future of our planet is dependent upon many committed individuals working together in order to find the innovative solutions needed to create a sustainable future.
