Previously scheduled for 9-10 March, the conference was rescheduled out of concern for the welfare of all participants with respect to the coronavirus.
Joy O'Shaughnessy, chief operating officer for HighQuest Group (parent company of WIA) and event director for Women in Agribusiness (WIA) initiatives, explained that while the decision was a difficult one to make, “due to an abundance of caution and concern for the welfare of all of our event participants in regard to the threat of the coronavirus, we felt it was best to postpone the event.” O'Shaughnessy conferred with sponsors, speakers and attendees, as well as reviewing the recommendations from the World Health Organization, before announcing the postponement.
“We are grateful for the support and collaboration among our participants regarding this decision, and look forward to welcoming the Women in Agribusiness community to Paris in July where they can expect in-depth industry insight, detailed outlooks of the agri-food sector, and boundless opportunities for networking,” said O'Shaughnessy.
The jam-packed agenda will remain the same for the July event and include topics such as:
- Geopolitical Overview of European Agriculture
- Reforming the Agricultural System
- Reducing Food Waste
- Farming 4.0 - Ushering in the Age of Digital Agriculture
- Green Funding: Critical or Counterproductive?
- Agricultural Trade After Brexit
