GFIA: at the centre of the dialogue on how to feed the world

When GFIA was launched in Abu Dhabi in 2014, it was born out of the passion of 40 influential organisations including the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the UN, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and the World Bank, that wanted a platform to start a globally significant dialogue on how we can feed nine billion people.

The exhibition attracts over 7,500 agtech experts and farmers, 250+ exhibitors showcasing their innovative products, all aimed to improve the food production process. The Future Farming Theatre will be organised at the exhibition during the 2 days (9 and 10 May). Entrance is free of charge for the exhibition.
