In the agribusiness industry, every year brings new trends and challenges. While demand continues to grow, consumer needs shift, production challenges increase, and evolving technology impacts every part of the value chain. The complex network of businesses that brings food and other agricultural products to market must continually reconfigure itself in such a highly dynamic environment. This creates timely opportunities for those agribusiness leaders who are ready to think innovatively—and move quickly.
For more than 50 years, senior decision makers and thought leaders from around the globe have gathered at Harvard Business School (HBS) for the seminal Agribusiness Seminar. This January, executives from all agribusiness sectors and all stages in the supply chain will come together once again to explore trends and prepare to take their businesses to new levels of success.
This premier event unites you with a diverse group of agribusiness and food industry peers in the quest to enhance leadership capacity in the world's most important sector. Through a holistic exploration of agribusiness challenges and best practices—encompassing business, economic, political, environmental, and social issues—you will gain new insight into today's global marketplace, discover new sources of inspiration, and lay the foundation for business growth and a better future for the planet.
