Focusing on the pivotal Asian region and Pacific basin, IFA's Crossroads Asia-Pacific Conference is an extremely popular event, with some 400 participants in attendance. This event is organized under the guidance of the Regional Vice Presidents for all members with an interest in Asia and the Pacific as well as newcomers acquainting themselves with the Association in view of potential membership. 

This year’s conference will put emphasis on the host country, with high-level speakers from China to better understand the drivers of fertilizer supply and demand in the country. The conference will also offer the opportunity to engage the regional industry in IFA’s scenario planning initiative IFA2030, and to update members on IFA’s communication activities.
