evokeAG. 2022 goes bi-coastal – announcing two events - Perth and Sydney
Drought resilience, carbon farming, decreasing on-farm waste, increasing sustainability, simplifying the ‘farmer tech-stack’, removing barriers to agritech adoption, local investment in innovation, and access to global markets are just some of the items on the agenda for evokeAG. 2022.
Industry experts, farmers, decision makers, agritech leaders, food innovators, investors and startups will all be taking to the evokeAG. stage again in 2022 to explore what’s next in farming and the food supply-chain.
In a response to continued uncertainty with interstate and international travel, evokeAG. is going bi-coastal in 2022, taking the region’s premier agrifood innovation event to both Perth, WA and Sydney, NSW.
After two successful events in 2019 and 2020, evokeAG. will once again bring the agrifood community together – including farmers, corporates, agribusiness, researchers, startups, scale-ups, investors and government – to look at what’s next in farming technology and food innovation.
John Harvey, Managing Director of AgriFutures Australia, says that committing to host two events in 2022 is critical to supporting Australia’s farmers, by driving innovation. While it has been great to connect with global stakeholders digitally over the past year, it is hard to replace in-person conversations and the energy created by bringing like-minded individuals into the same room.
“We have seen so much growth across agritech and food innovation in Australia, not just in the last 12-months but really the last three-years, with Australian innovators attracting increased investment and global demand each year,” said Mr Harvey.
“There is momentum building across the sector, and now we are starting to see our agritech developers mature and collaborate – they are delivering fabulous technologies to Australian farmers.”
As local and global agrifood innovation continues to mature, and grow increasingly collaborative, delivering these world-class technologies back to farmers and growers is critical.
“Working with farmers to increase profit and adopt sustainable practices is critical, connecting agrifood innovators with farmers is the key,” Mr Harvey continues, “there are a lot of great initiatives that support this, including evokeAG.”
The evokeAG. events will take place in Perth and Sydney in 2022, making it easier for people to
access one of the events, regardless of border restrictions.
“We are hoping that interstate travel will be uninterrupted by February 2022, but want to ensure that people can get together and keep the important conversations happening, not just on stage, but throughout all the activities and meetings that happen when people travel to one location.”
In February 2020, the evokeAG. event just missed the initial COVID-19 lockdown, attracting 1478 delegates to the event in Melbourne. In 2022, there will be a maximum of 500 delegates at each one-day event, with ticket allocations expected to be exhausted quickly.
“The value delivered through evokeAG. is involving everyone in the conversation – farmers, agritech developers, researchers, investors, corporates and government – it takes all of these people to identify and address on-farm challenges and opportunities.”
The theme of the 2022 events is ‘evokeAG. – What’s next? and will again bring people together to explore what’s next in agritech and food innovation.
The events are taking place on 23 February 2022 in Perth, WA and 15 March 2022 in Sydney, NSW.
Tickets are on-sale on Tuesday, 29 June 2021 at evokeag.com
