Arab Fertilizer Association conference in Cairo

If you’re curious about whirling dervishes, it seems that Egypt is the place to see them, and even to become one. Our intrepid fertilizer editors took to the stage at the Arab Fertilizer Association (AFA) conference in Cairo last week, in an impromptu display of advanced whirling.


Says Antonella Harrison, managing editor of “The Market”: “Rebecca Clarke and I highly raised the profile of ICIS by joining in a local Egyptian dance, the Tanura, on the final evening of the AFA 16th Annual conference… And bear in mind there was no alcohol served at the dinner!”

    We heard via IFA that the AFA Cairo conference had been cancelled. We are expecting that the conference will take place in a few months’ time in another location, but nothing has been confirmed.
