We have selected gurus (Subject Matter Experts) and technocrats in their fields of endeavor, to come and impact knowledge that will enhance profitability and guarantee food security.

Though it’s a 3-day program, our charges for booth, advertisements and product presentations are very considerate because we take into cognizance the economic situation in Nigeria. We are not out to kill but to revive businesses and help them flourish.
We have spread our tentacles globally to embrace participants from all over the world – exhibitors, speakers, farmers, and students.
