The Africa Fertilizer Agribusiness Conference 2018 is the latest collaboration between CRU Events and The African Fertilizer and Agribusiness Partnership (AFAP). Through this unique partnership, we are offering unrivalled networking opportunities with senior decision-makers from the biggest fertilizer buyers and manufacturers in some of the world's fastest growing fertilizer markets. We are delighted to be bringing the conference to Cape Town, South Africa. Known as the 'Mother City', Cape Town is an established agribusiness hub that is easy to reach and provides top quality conference facilities.

This comprehensive three-day event will bring together more than 400 international delegates from across the global fertilizer and agribusiness supply chain. Sessions will be centred on how partnership, investment and innovation can boost fertilizer trade and allow agribusiness to flourish in this region. It promises to deliver a first-hand understanding of the challenges and opportunities, and offers unrivalled access to high-level, hard to reach decision-makers.

This year's themes will include:

Hear the world's leading suppliers of fertilizer discuss their African growth strategies
Major agriculture, agribusiness and agro-food companies outline market trends
Mining for nutrients in Africa - latest updates on key projects across the continent
Cash crop market insights on cocoa, coffee and other growth markets
