The 4th Agrofood Ethiopia in 2020 continues its success story.
Agrofood Ethiopia is organized by the German trade show specialists fairtrade Messe in cooperation with their Ethiopian partners Prana Events, and it is scheduled for 01 to 03 October 2020 at the Millennium Hall in Addis Ababa.
The event is held in conjunction with plastprintpack Ethiopia, Ethiopia’s 4th International Plastics, Printing and Packaging Trade Show.
East and Central Africa’s largest economy is on the growth track as Ethiopia’s GDP is expected to increase from US$ 84 billion in 2018 to US$ 91 billion in 2019 and US$ 99 billion in 2020. Ethiopia’s GDP has thus grown more than tenfold between 2000 (US$ 8 billion) and 2018 and would grow more than twelvefold by 2020. (World Bank) As a result, Ethiopia became one of the world’s fastest-growing economies and an impressive investment destination in Africa.
According to the Ethiopian government, Ethiopia, until 2025, shall become the manufacturing hub of Africa, and its population shall achieve middle-income status. All this shall be reached within the framework of a carbon-neutral economy.
Based on these upbeat market developments, Agrofood Ethiopia 2020 is to continue its success story.
NEW DATES TO BE CONFIRMED
It is with a heavy heart that the Plant Based World team has decided not to hold the show in October 2020 due to the impact of COVID-19. We make this decision with the unanimous support of our partners and advisory council, and with the health and safety of the PBW community as our top concern.
Plant Based World is an experiential event featuring food sampling and demos, and genuine human interaction. Given the state of the world at this time and the uncertainty of the near future, we do not feel that we can guarantee a safe environment to hold a show of this nature come October. We are working with the Javits Convention Center to solidify new dates for 2021.
While this decision comes with immense disappointment for our team and the community we serve, we do see threads of a silver lining. The health of our bodies and the planet we share has never been a more pressing topic. We firmly believe that in the coming months and years more people will become aware of the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle and our movement will continue to grow.
We look forward to a future when we can once again gather en masse to share food and drink, flaunt our uncovered smiles, and freely distribute handshakes and hugs to our fellow humans. Rest assured that for years to come, PBW will be there to showcase the innovations and celebrate the progress we have made towards a healthier world for all beings.
Stay tuned to our website, newsletter and social pages for updates in the coming months as we seek creative ways to engage our community in the absence of a physical event. We exist to support you and your personal and professional growth, and we intend to continue to do so.
Thank you for your understanding, courage and strength in these challenging times.
The Plant Based World Team
