The event will be organized by the Khalifa International Award for Date Palm and Agricultural Innovation, in collaboration with UAE University and the International Center for Biosaline Agriculture (ICBA).

Participants from the public and private sectors of multiple countries will consider the state of date palm cultivation in the world, harvesting and processing technologies, cultural practices, economics, marketing, nutrition, health, and other related issues.

Several round table discussions will be held during the conference, reflecting the event’s main theme: "Date Palm and Challenges of Future Outlook."
