Kampala : East Africa Agribusiness Investment Summit & Awards – 10th Dec13
Uganda will host the East Africa Agribusiness Investment Summit & Awards-(the Summit) on the 10th to 11th December 2013, at Kampala Serena Hotel. The Summit is one of Focus on East Africa’s showcase events and aims at strengthening East Africa’s private sector participation in Agribusiness, by encouraging partnerships and attracting investments. It is held in collaboration with the World Bank, the European Union delegation in Uganda and the Eastern Africa Farmers' Federation among others. I enclose, for your ease of reference, a delegates prospectus which embodies the conference agenda, reason why you should attend etc.
This year’s Summit offers a limited number of prestigious delegate opportunities to qualified regional industry players at the most senior level possible. We are delighted to invite you to attend this premier industry event and I have attached a registration form for you to confirm your participation by filling it in and return to us.
The target audience will include senior decision makers from East Africa’s leading Agribusinesses, Traders, Agricultural Organisations, Financial Institutions, Impact investors, Advisory Firms, Cooperatives, Donors, Diplomatic Missions, Foundations, NGOs and Government Agencies. The Summit therefore offers a unique opportunity for your organisation to broaden its reach within the market by targeting this highly influential group.
Participants are drawn by the excellent quality of the conference program, which is focused on commercial business issues, as well as the opportunity to directly connect and open partnerships that could offer a new scope of scalability for the sector.
The speaker line up promises provocative and insightful discussions as it brings together the best people available to further the dialogue on agribusiness development in the region from varying perspectives. One of the major strengths is that the event programme draws together speakers and participants from the East African region to provide much needed inter-country dialogue. The conference also has an action focus so that the knowledge development and discussions that emerge are located in specific policy and practice fields that can advance regional agribusiness development.
The Summit will also feature the East Africa Agribusiness Awards, which will celebrate the ingenuity and effectiveness of the leading lights within the industry.
I look forward to hearing from you
