Join us November 14–17, 2023, for the first event to be hosted in Africa by the Alliance for Modernizing African Agrifood (AMAA) Systems, a Global Initiative of the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers. This technical conference and technology showcase builds on past special events with thought leaders, special sessions at ASABE Annual International Meetings, and connections with others with common vision.

We are seeking abstracts for presentations in the following categories:

The technology showcase is for both mature and start-up companies to exhibit their technologies, create awareness about their innovations and companies, and network with potential customers. Technologies can range from machine systems, crop production systems, post-harvest and value-addition for both cold and dry food chains, water, environmental, ecosystems and irrigation services, smart and digital agriculture systems, forestry and wood processing, logistics and financial services.
