ABOUT GAI

The leader in connecting the global agriculture investment community

Since its inception in 2009, Global AgInvesting (GAI) has been the world’s premier agriculture investment conference series, attracting over 8,000 attendees worldwide.

As the most well attended event series dedicated to the agricultural investment sector, the success of GAI can be credited to the fact that our conferences are not trend-based events created by a generalized conference company. GAI is produced and conceived by a management team dedicated to this marketplace with a track record for delivering over 20 industry leading conferences featuring the most relevant and contemporary content, the most knowledgeable speakers, and
the most important networking opportunities in the sector.
MEET THE GAI TEAM Each year, Global AgInvesting hosts four international conferences and publishes the industry’s most critical intelligence – the GAI News aggregation and analysis service, and the GAI Gazette magazine.

GAI is a brand of HighQuest Group, a strategic advisory, conference and media company serving corporations, financial investors and governments across the global food and agribusiness value chains. www.highquestgroup.com
