The 8th edition of the annual Pre-Harvest Agribusiness Exhibition & Conference is scheduled to take place at the Aliu Mahama Sports Stadium in Tamale between the 3rd and 5th of October, 2018.
The Pre-Harvest Agribusiness Exhibition & Conference is a business forum and an interventional platform that provides opportunities for various value chain actors in the agric sector to meet, discuss business, contracts and work together as a coherent team whose goal is to ensure that enough produce is available locally for consumption thereby drastically reducing importation. This gathering will include farmers, public and private sector business officials and other ideas people.
Aside showcasing the many activities and businesses in the various areas of the agric sector, such as seed production, fertilizer, finance, fisheries, storage, machinery, livestock, packaging & processing, ICT among others, participants will be taken through practical and engaging sessions at the conference to enable them gain deeper insights into best practices as well as on how to take full advantage of the numerous opportunities in the agric sector for growth.
The event over the last seven years has succeeded in supporting and improving the activities of several thousands of farmers and businesses in the agric and agric-related sectors in Ghana.
In his view, Dr. Emmanuel Dormond, the USAID Chief of Party – ADVANCE, believes that the event has been very beneficial to participants over the last seven years.
“Starting in 2009 with a little over 200 participants, the event today has grown to attract over 1000 Participants who are willing and paying to attend in order to have the opportunity to transact business. Several Participants have confirmed that they have made business deals, got contracts, as well as getting buyers who are ready to take their produce”. He said. “I will advice everyone in this sector who wants to grow to take the opportunity this platform provides to make strides”. He concluded.
