Informa and Afrocet introduce Agra Innovate

Afrocet, a Nigerian based conference, exhibition and training organiser and Informa, the largest publically owned exhibitions and training provider in the world, are launching Agra Innovate: a new Nigerian exhibition and conference being staged at the Landmark Conference and Exhibition Centre, shortly to open at Oniru Estate, in Lagos on 18 – 20 November this year.

Agra Innovate will bring Nigerian policymakers, farming and food businesses together with theInforma Agra Innovate best of the international agribusiness technology and investment community.

“The profound reconstruction and modernisation of Nigerian agriculture that’s being led by President Goodluck Jonathan and Dr. Akinwumi A. Adesina (Honourable Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development) has rightly gathered respect throughout Africa and the wider world. Many international agribusiness organisations are now establishing or expanding their operations in Nigeria and partnering with Nigerian businesses to help accelerate innovation and share in this unfolding success story” states David Ross, Project Director for Agra Innovate.

Agra Innovate is constructed around issues critical to the sustained reform and reinvigoration of the Nigerian agricultural sector: the evolving policy framework, the current banking and lending environment, the development and application of innovative technologies and partnership models, improvements in communication, education, infrastructure, market access and the identification of investment opportunities and areas of future growth across key value chains.

Agra Innovate will provide a concentrated community of policymakers, agribusiness leaders, technologists and investors with an environment where knowledge sharing, technology transfer and the development of new partnerships and business networks will take place. The event will place a very strong emphasis on open dialogue amongst this audience, with interactive voting results, discussion outcomes and recommendations being recorded throughout the event. The exhibition will feature a global span of agricultural technology- and solution providers and will be free to attend for all Nigerian members of the agricultural and food manufacturing sector.
