CRU Events and AFAP are delighted to announce that the Africa Fertilizer Agribusiness 2018 conference will be held 24 – 26 September at the Century City Hotel and Conference Centre in Cape Town, South Africa. Known as the ‘Mother City’, Cape Town is an established agribusiness hub that is easy to reach and provides top quality conference facilities.

Due to the unique partnership of CRU Events and AFAP this conference series is now well established as the premier meeting for linking senior executives from across the international fertilizer supply chain with key stake holders in African agribusiness. This year, the conference partners have decided to consolidate the West and East Africa Fertilizer Agribusiness events into one large conference with a comprehensive and interactive programme.
