VIV MEA 2023 to be held alongside Horti Agri Next MEA in Abu Dhabi, UAE



VIV MEA 2023 and Horti Agri Next MEA 2023 (HAN MEA) will be held on November 20-22  at the ADNEC Venue in Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates, and are poised to emerge as pivotal events within the Abu Dhabi Agriculture Food and Security Week.


The co-located events aim to revolutionise agriculture across the Middle East and Northern Africa by offering a platform for professionals, enthusiasts and industry leaders to connect, learn and thrive, the events' organiser said. They emphasise the inter-connectedness of animal production, precision farming, rural cultivation and advanced horticultural techniques.


By showcasing how advancements in one sector can catalyse innovations across the entire food production supply chain, the two trade shows hold particular significance in a region striving to enhance food self-sufficiency.


VIV MEA 2023 serves as a platform for agricultural innovation, with a specific focus on the animal livestock value chain. This event highlights cutting-edge technologies and solutions, ranging from automated processes that streamline production to sustainable practices that contribute to a healthier and more sustainable future.


The first edition of HAN MEA 2023 will offer a unique opportunity for attendees to delve into the world of advanced horticulture. The event explores precision growing, smart irrigation, vertical farming and more, fostering collaborative connections between researchers, growers and technology providers to drive the horticultural industry forward.


Both VIV MEA and HAN MEA will feature extensive speaker and expert programmes. Industry thought leaders, researchers and pioneers will share insights through seminars, workshops and panel discussions.


Notable speakers include Henry Gordon-Smith, chief executive officer of Agritecture, who will moderate AgritectureXchange, a panel discussion series addressing agricultural hot topics in the region. Additionally, experts from Dutch Green House Delta, Hub Orange and Wageningen University will provide invaluable insights.


The Poultry Marketing Roundtable (PMRT), now in its third edition, will bring together stakeholders to discuss and address future uncertainties in the poultry industry. As the future unfolds with smart cities, smart marketing and smart farming, PMRT seeks solutions to emerging challenges.


Held the day before VIV MEA 2023, the Aquafeed Extrusion & Nutrition Conference is a one-day event focused on aquatic feed production, extrusion, nutrition and aquaculture. Covering various aquafeed topics, this conference provides valuable knowledge, solutions and research for aquaculture professionals.
