Why attend IFA events ?

Through its events, IFA offers rich opportunities for its members to meet, exchange views on the issues facing the industry and find opportunities for industry outreach. Peer-to-peer contacts are fundamentally important for the industry’s business operations and robust competition. Networking also facilitates the exchange of best practices to drive improved performance. IFA provides open forums for networking and the exchange of knowledge and expertise.

To facilitate participation, IFA negotiates special room rates, coordinates selected hotels to provide customized services and offers a personalized reservation service. Conferences are financed by members through participation fees and occasionally through event sponsorship. IFA’s Annual Conference is the annual fertilizer industry event worldwide. Held in different regions each year, it attracts around 1,300 participants, including chief executives and senior management representatives.
