Dear colleagues and partners,

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to AAHC 2024 which will take place from 26th of February to 1st of March 2024 in Marrakech, Morocco.

The development of horticulture is key to Africa food quality (nutrition and safety). Horticulture has the potential to settle new ways of producing and consuming. This is why AAHC will be about unlocking the potential of a resilient Horticulture sector in Africa.

The development of Horticulture is one of the main tools that can help leverage the increase of productivity and competitiveness in Africa and strengthen its contribution to the regional wellbeing and reduce dependency on food imports.

Unlocking the potential of a resilient Horticulture in Africa is the theme of the fifth AAHC, with the objectives to discuss and promote the huge potential of African Horticulture. The event will provide professionals of horticulture, researchers, young scientists and entrepreneurs, with a platform where they can share the results of research, applications and latest innovations as well as build a network of technical cooperation between professionals of Horticulture throughout Africa and the rest of the world. Also, youth and early career horticulturists will have ample opportunity to interact with the experienced ones.

Morocco is a major horticultural country in North Africa, and Marrakech is the second most important horticultural area of Morocco after Agadir. During the AAHC2024, you will have the chance to visit the Horticulture industry and meet its people in Marrakech and Agadir.

You’ll also have the opportunity to enjoy the charms of Marrakech which enjoys a worldwide reputation as the number one tourist destination of Morocco, its landscape, historical treasures and fine gastronomy.

The organizing committee is preparing an unprecedented fifth edition of the AAHC, which will focus on hosting an outstanding scientific and technical event, reinforcing the links between research, education, industry, public and private and enhancing the links between Africa and the rest of the World.

On behalf of the organizing committee,
we're looking forward to meeting you in Marrakech in the spring of 2024.
