Each year, the IFAJ and its member guilds arrange a number of different events, offering professional development, the continuing pursuit of agricultural knowledge and establishing new contacts and networks.
Chief amongst these is the annual IFAJ Congress. Hosted by a single member guild, the event showcases the home nation's agricultural industry and national culture. Attended by up to 200 journalists and IFAJ members, it's the highlight of the IFAJ year.Other IFAJ-organised events include the Master Class and Young Leaders initiatives, which are integrated into the annual Congress, and the Exposure-4-Development program.Throughout the year, IFAJ member guilds often host smaller, shorter press trips, focused on particular topics or regions.Until 2016, the IFAJ Executive held a winter meeting at Green Week, in Berlin, Germany. From 2017, this will be hosted on a rotating basis by IFAJ member guilds.
