Apply to present your sustainable agriculture innovation in Abu Dhabi

Deadline: 1 September 2017. Scroll down to apply to speak at GFIA 2017

Each year, GFIA assembles the world’s largest collection of game-changing, sustainable agriculture innovations. We are looking for speakers from all disciplines, backgrounds and perspectives – including private companies, entrepreneurs, NGOs, not-for-profits, universities and research centres.

Whether high tech or low tech, at the ideas stage, or part of an ongoing scientific research project, if your innovation has the potential to shape the future of sustainable agriculture, we want to hear from you.

  • Meet with food producers and growers from across the world sourcing solutions to deliver higher yields
  • Network with investors on the hunt for emerging technologies
  • Engage with research and science who are looking to partner with industry
  • Connect with resellers and agents launching new products throughout Europe and in emerging markets

Speakers selected for the programme have up to 15 minutes to share the details of their innovation (in the style of TED talks), in a way that is inspiring as well as informative – and maybe even a little entertaining!

Please complete the form below and we will contact you if we need more information.


Held in strategic partnership with the Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority, GFIA works with over 40 globally significant partners committed to using GFIA as a catalyst for change.
