    The Annual Congress is IFAJ’s flagship event.

    Hosted by a different member guild each year, Congress brings together IFAJ members from all over the world for an immersive few days in a country’s agriculture.

    Delegates return home with a remarkable insight into different agricultural industries and practices, providing valuable opportunities to report, compare and contrast, improve knowledge and build networks. It’s also an important business event for IFAJ; it’s here that both the Executive and Delegate Assemblies meet, and strategy debated and decided.

    For the home guild, it’s a tremendous opportunity to showcase ‘their’ agriculture to the rest of the world, while at the same time building and strengthening relationships with domestic associations, trade bodies and sponsors. It also provides much-needed interaction with other guilds.

    The legacy of hosting a Congress, and around 200 overseas journalists, communicators and photographers, often leads to renewed enthusiasm and vigor for home-grown initiatives.
