Dear Friends of IAMA, Ladies and Gentlemen,
We are living in a globalized society. Cities on every continent are becoming more and more alike. Multinational companies are present everywhere with similar
strategies and products. Although trade has become more liberal, economic developments in one part of the world immediately impact the other. Still, nations and
regions have their own economic conditions and social and cultural traditions which include food products and gastronomy. IAMA is a Worldwide Association which
embraces new opportunities to learn, appreciate and promote regional specialties.
Our industry is facing many challenges among every sector of the global agri-agro food system. The theme of this world congress is “Global Challenges - Local
Solutions.” Your Hungarian hosts have collaborated with organizations from Slovakia, Czech Republic and Poland and we’d like to present our economic solutions,
successes, and business strategies while sharing our rich cultural and gastronomic traditions.
IAMA’s is pleased to partner with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to once again, host a simultaneous workshop. Please see the
program description for this informative two-day workshop on Agribusiness and Agro-industries: Development in Central and Eastern Europe.
We would like to extend a warm welcome and invite you to come and share innovative solutions from your region of the world. We offer an outstanding program
combined with good food, music, entertainment and beautiful landscapes. Come and enjoy yourself, make new friends, and experience Budapest at the 19th Annual
World Forum and Symposium, June 20-23, 2009!
