3rd Global Agribusiness Management
and Entrepreneurship Conference

BREAKING THE MOLD

Agribusiness & Entrepreneurship Amid Disruptive Forces

October 2021

About the Conference

The agribusiness and MSME sectors are facing numerous challenges and opportunities resulting from various disruptive forces.  These forces include the Fourth Industrial Revolution, climate change, trade liberalization, precision agriculture, food safety and traceability, inclusivity and sustainability, supply chain integration, technological innovations, conflict and instability, and genetically modified organisms, among others.

Disruptions in the marketplace could open opportunities for organizations which understand the disruptive forces taking place and are open to evolving. Responding to the formidable, multi-faceted challenges today will require a reconfiguring of business models, strategies, management structures and processes, human resource management practices, organizational culture and mindsets. Achieving these transformations will require multistakeholder dialogue, sharing insights, agreeing on priorities and forging potential partnerships and networks. 

GAME 2021 with the theme, “Breaking the Mold: Agribusiness and Entrepreneurship Amid Disruptive Forces” will serve as a venue for academicians, researchers, practitioners, policy-makers, and representatives from international agencies, NGOs, and industry and farmers’ associations to learn about how to unlock opportunities for growth against a backdrop of disruption.

In general, the GAME 2021 Conference aims to bring together key stakeholders in the agribusiness and MSME sectors to discuss the disruptive forces influencing the sectors and to exchange ideas on the potential strategies and development entry points which could facilitate growth and sustainability amid these forces. 

UPDATE: 

Due to Covid-19, this two-day conference is postponed to October 2021. Official statement of the GAME Committee is as follows:

The recent global developments brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic have prompted us to shift our attention from organizing the conference to assisting our stakeholders in navigating through the coronavirus crisis. We are currently focusing our resources in addressing the immediate needs of the communities we belong to. We are also gathering insights and learning from the agribusiness sector as this pandemic serves as an opportunity for us to rethink our agribusiness systems and strategize towards making it more resilient and sustainable.

We would like to thank our partners and speakers who have committed to collaborate with us in this endeavor in every way possible. We believe that this is a temporary setback and we look forward to your continued support and participation in the conference next year
