Events and activities

1. Academic Symposium

The Academic Symposium provides the intellectual foundation and scientific creditability for the discussions that will follow during the Business Forum. The IFAMA 2024 conference begins with a two-day Academic Symposium. Scholars are invited to share new research and teaching case studies with colleagues from academia, industry, NGOs and government. Submitted papers undergo a blind peer-review vetted by the Symposium Review Committee. Extended abstracts and full papers are due no later than January 29, 2024. Authors submitting quality and novel research will be invited to publish their papers in the International Food and Agribusiness Management Review — IFAMA’s flagship journal of food and agribusiness management.

Learn more about the Academic Symposium.

“The Academic Symposium in Almeria will feature over 120 research papers, case studies and practitioner sessions from attendees in more than 50 countries.”

2. Student Case Competition

Annually, IFAMA organizes the only global Student Case Competition exclusively focused on agribusiness and it will be held June 17-20.

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.

3. Business Forum

The capstone event of all IFAMA conferences is the 2-Day Business Forum (June 19-20). It includes hot-topic discussions from high-level industry speakers, breakout panels, action-oriented workshops, Innovative exhibits, and cross-sector networking—including a Welcome Reception and the Presidential Awards Banquet. You’ll 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 rare venue bringing together top thought leaders who create a cross-pollination of 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.
