Events and activities

1. Academic Symposium

The Academic Symposium provides the intellectual foundation and scientific credibility for the discussions that will follow during the Business Forum. The IFAMA 2024 conference begins with a two-day Academic Symposium. Academics are invited to share new research and teaching case studies with colleagues from academia, industry, NGOs and government. Submitted papers are subject to blind peer review by the Symposium Review Committee. Abstracts and full papers should be submitted by January 29, 2024. Authors submitting novel and quality research will be invited to publish their papers in the International Food and Agribusiness Management Review, IFAMA’s flagship journal on food and agribusiness management.

More information about the Academic Symposium.

“More than 120 research papers, case studies and practitioner sessions from more than 50 countries will be presented at the Almeria Academic Symposium.”

2. Case Student Competition

IFAMA organizes annually the world’s only student case competition focused exclusively on agribusiness, which will take place from June 17 to 20.
The competition requires teams to solve a complex case in four hours. Teams are given a real-world challenge, develop a creative and practical solution and produce a presentation that communicates their perspective, analysis and recommendations to a panel of judges.

Learn more about the Case Student Competition.

3. Business Forum

The culminating event of all IFAMA conferences is the two-day Business Forum (June 19-20). It includes discussions on hot topics by high-level industry speakers, panel discussions, action-oriented workshops, innovative exhibits and cross-sector networking, including a welcome reception and presidential awards banquet. You will meet experts and colleagues from around the world who are addressing the most pressing challenges facing the food and agribusiness sector today. It is a unique place where key opinion leaders gather to exchange ideas and share vital solutions.

These are some of the companies that participated in previous editions:

Inspiring. Think big. Visionary!

There is no other place to learn about the opportunities directly from the world's top innovators, young leaders and professionals at the same conference.

The perfect opportunity to address global challenges.

The conference was thought-provoking, full of freshness and diversity and left me excited and optimistic for the future.
