Attendee feedback

“The meeting of some of the best minds and most important actors in the industry.”
Jamie Patrick, McKinsey and Company

“I was spending my days as a GFIA delegate with a group of mostly European, Middle Eastern and African leaders vastly more action oriented than any I had seen in my seven years as a participant at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. While Davos was always about projecting the identity of “importance” simply by virtue of ones attendance - GFIA in Abu Dhabi was laser focussed on the foundations of global security in its truest sense.”
Dylan Ratigan, New York Times Best-Selling author, entrepreneur and former host of MSNBC’s The Dylan Ratigan Show

 “Your work to promote sustainability and resource conservation through what I hope will be genuinely appropriate technology and innovation could not be more important.”
HRH The Prince of Wales, speaking at GFIA 2015

“We need all of you, the world’s leading experts on agriculture to muster every ounce of courage and innovative energy you have...We have met these challenges before and I assure you we can meet them again. Keep up the great work.”
John Kerry, US Secretary of State, speaking at GFIA 2015

“It was extremely exciting and entertaining, full of brilliant minds and super ideas for the future.”
Agustin Mercado Jr, World Agroforestry Centre

“These type of events, and maybe in particular this one, is important for everybody. Not just for people working within this field but basically for the entire world.”
Dr. Mark Post, Professor of Physiology at Maastrict University and the scientist behind the Google-funded lab burger

“This particular event has all those completive parts, it has the investors, it has the users, it has the producers, it has all the interest you could possibly ask for.”
August Dunning, Research Scientist, Eco Research LLC

“On behalf of the Kenya delegation we want to sincerely thank you for making it possible for Kenya to participate in GFIA. We were exposed to innovative agriculture initiatives which I believe will change the way we practice farming.”
Mr. Enock Sailewu, Economic Affairs, Kenya Embassy, UAE
