By 2050, there will be 10 billion people on Earth and today’s agriculture can’t deliver enough food to meet that need. At the inaugural Food For Future Summit & Expo and Global Agtech Expo, we aim to collectively inspire new solutions
to meet this need through innovative thinking, multi-disciplinary expertise and collaborative action.

Mariam Al Mheiri, Minister of Climate Change & Environment, UAE and in association with United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Organised by World Trade Centre and powered by Gulfood.
Join us, get inspired, be part of the profound discussions and innovative outcomes at the Summit.
Partnership is a key pillar in the government work model, and we will work with relevant local and international entities to draft a framework that will help us achieve mutual interests and support our food and water sector
