Annual Congress

2021 eCONGRESS

Due to the consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are sorry to announce, that the Danish organizing committee (OC) has assessed that it will be unrealistic to conduct the IFAJ 2021 Congress in Denmark.
This year’s event were planned to replace the IFAJ 2020 congress in Denmark that was cancelled due to the C-19 pandemic. However, given the development of the ongoing pandemic, it is neither safe nor realistic to carry out a physical congress in 2021 with participants from all over the world. Hence, the 2021 congress will be a virtual event. More details to come as they become available. 

2022 Denmark

The Danish OC is working closely together with the IFAJ Presidium as well as future congress hosts to find solutions and opportunities to host the next IFAJ congress.
The planned IFAJ 2022 host – our friends and colleagues from The Swiss Guild – have generously offered to move the IFAJ Congress in Switzerland from 2022 to 2024 – thus making 2022 available for a congress in Denmark. The congress is anticipated to be held in June.

    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.
