28.02.18

AgriFutures Australia has announced they will be hosting a unique international technology event specifically for the food and farming community called evokeAG in Melbourne in February 2019.

“We stand on the threshold of a new era in global agriculture. With the explosion of new technologies like: machine learning, robotics, synthetic biology, internet of things, augmented reality and many more. Now is the time for us to shape how these technologies will transform the future of food and farming” said John Harvey, Managing Director, AgriFutures Australia.

“These technologies know no borders. They cross sectors and industries and impact at a global scale. It’s time for us to harness the collective experience, knowledge and talent of everyone, both domestically and internationally. Together we can seize the opportunities, leverage our advantages, diversify and create new market opportunities” said Mr Harvey.

At evokeAG, recognised leaders, farmers, innovators and investors, from Australia and overseas, will share and explore new directions for the next generation of food and farming. evokeAG is about connecting people who are serious about embracing the practical application of new technologies to solve real problems in the real world.

Leaders from AgFunder, AgThentic, Austrade, CSIRO, Food Futures Company, KPMG and SproutX have joined the evokeAG Steering Committee and are strategically shaping the event to ensure maximum impact.

“Working in collaboration with our Steering Committee means evokeAG will be different to anything before in this space. We have the brightest minds working together towards one goal – to power prosperity by connecting agriculture, food and its communities to technology” said Mr Harvey.

If you are a farmer, investor, consumer, agrifood tech startup, student, researcher, corporate, business, accelerator, incubator, entrepreneur, thought leader or in government, we welcome you to join us in Melbourne in 2019.
