IFA Strategic Forum

26-28 November, Dubai, UAE

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

It is my pleasure to inform you that registration for IFA’s 2016 Strategic Forum being held in the dynamic city of Dubai from 26-28 of November is now open!

Since feedstocks are a topic that looms large for our industry, November 28 will be dedicated to a strategic examination of key feedstock-related issues, long term trends and policy directions of importance to the nitrogen, phosphate and potash segments of the industry.

On November 27, we will be holding the Opening Session, IFA’s General Meeting and Market Outlook, followed by a Gala dinner graciously hosted by Muntajat that evening.

We will kick this year’s Strategic Forum off with a welcome reception hosted by GPIC on the evening of Saturday, November 26.  Please note that IFA Ambassadors and other IFA members with an interest in joining are invited to participate in a strategic planning session with the International Fertilizer Development Center (IFDC), which will be held the afternoon of November 26.  IFA’s Young Professionals will also be gathering in Dubai – please do bring along one or more promising young colleagues (at a 50% discounted registration fee) for what promises to be an outstanding program and networking event.

IFA’s members from the Gulf region join me in extending you a warm welcome to Dubai!

Best regards, 

Abdulrahman Jawahery
