Why attend

The Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture (GFIA) brings together thousands of leading stakeholders from across the agrifood value chain in the MENA region and from around the world to meet and do business.

GFIA is one of the few events in the world to present solutions and inspire debate across all types of food production from Indoor Farming and Hydroponics to Date Palm Production, Crops, Livestock and Animal Production and Aquaculture.

Meet leading innovators, decision-makers, influencers and investors building the future of sustainable food production.

Explore the latest new solutions, and stay up to date with innovations and trends to help your business save natural resources, improve productivity, increase efficiencies and meet the challenges of climate change.

Showcase your solutions, demo your products, find distributors and investors and reach a large industry audience.

Network, share ideas and build partnerships with like-minded businesses.

Co-located with VIV MEA. In 2018, GFIA will be co-located with VIV MEA, the largest exhibition in the region dedicated to solutions for poultry production.


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.
