The 9th International Macadamia Symposium (IMS’23), promises to bring you an unforgettable experience. The IMS is set to take place from 19 – 21 September at the prestigious Zimbali, The Capital Hotel, in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. This symposium, a highlight in the macadamia industry’s calendar, will bring together industry leaders, experts, and enthusiasts from around the world to explore the latest trends, innovations, and opportunities in the macadamia sector.

According to the CEO of Macadamias South Africa NPC (SAMAC), Lizel Pretorius, on behalf of IMS’23, says she is pleased to extend a warm welcome to all the delegates, in a truly South African way. “I’m very proud to represent our beautiful country and am excited to bring Africa to the people through our rich culture and diversity. This event, in partnership with John Deere, will reflect South Africa’s vibrant and friendly nature. We believe that our unique blend of traditions, customs, and languages is a true reflection of our identity as a nation, and we are excited to share it with the world. By embracing our cultural heritage and promoting diversity, we hope to inspire others to do the same and create a more inclusive and harmonious world for all.”

“We believe that the macadamia industry is one of the most exciting and dynamic sectors in agriculture today, and we are proud to be at the forefront of this important field. With South Africa leading the way in macadamia production, processing, and marketing, we are excited to share our expertise and insights with colleagues on a global scale.”

Lizel says the program is packed with a diverse range of sessions, workshops, and networking events that they believe will provide valuable learning opportunities for all attendees. “We are confident that you will find the content of the conference both interesting and insightful, and we hope that it will inspire new ideas and strategies to help grow and improve the industry.
She also stressed the invaluable opportunity it provides to businesses.

“I am delighted to extend an invitation to businesses to join us as sponsors and exhibitors. The IMS provides an exceptional platform for businesses to showcase their products, services, and expertise to a global audience. By becoming involved, businesses not only contribute to the success of the symposium but also gain valuable exposure and networking opportunities.”

Sponsorship opportunities at the IMS offer businesses a range of benefits, including prominent brand visibility, recognition in marketing materials, and the chance to align their company with a leading industry event. Exhibitors will have dedicated space to showcase their offerings, engage with delegates, and forge new business connections. This is an unparalleled opportunity to reach key decision-makers, industry professionals, and potential clients.

The IMS is committed to creating a dynamic and rewarding experience for all participants. The event will feature insightful keynote speeches, interactive panel discussions, and engaging networking sessions.

Additionally, delegates will have the chance to explore a diverse range of exhibitor displays, offering innovative products, services, and solutions related to the macadamia industry.
I encourage businesses across the macadamia value chain to seize this opportunity.
