Crenov8 Hosts MTFC Media Launch Event in Abuja Nigeria
The second Meet the Farmers Conference(MTFC) media launch event for Nigeria held on the 9th of August, at Sheraton Hotel Abuja.
Meet the Farmers Conference is our annual agro event that connects agro producers from Africa to off-takers from the Middle East and beyond. The conference serves as an opportunity for participants to learn, network and to establish strategic partnerships for bilateral trade relationships between Africa and the Gulf Cooperation Council.
Our aim was to prepare farmers and all agro stakeholders present towards the third edition of the Conference that is slated to hold in November 2019. The vision and mission of MTFC were communicated to encourage agro exportation from Nigeria to the GCC.
The Abuja media launch was our second media launch in Nigeria, after the first event held in Lagos State. It was well-attended by our partners, farmers, and representatives of both private and public agro stakeholders, such as AFEX Commodity Exchange Limited, the Federation of Nigeria (FACAN), Nigerian Women Agro-Allied Farmers Association (NIWAAFA), Farm Awareness for Food Preservation Initiative (FAFPI), etc.
The event was an opportunity for attendees to register and effectively network ahead of the main conference in Dubai, UAE. Both participants and members of the press gained insight on the export requirements and received answers to questions pertaining to the conference.
We also announced that the third edition of Meet the Farmers Conference 2019 will be held at the Marina Hotel., Dubai UAE on the 27th and 28th of November 2019. The theme of the conference is “Creating a Sustainable Future; Food Security| Trade | Technology.”
Registration is still ongoing for attendees, sponsors, and partners. The registration can be processed on the website or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
