How to convince your boss to approve your request to attend evokeAG. 2024
AgriFutures evokeAG. is Asia Pacific’s premier agrifood innovation event is back in 2024 and is bringing a diverse group of individuals and organisations in Perth on 20-21 February 2024 to explore the exceptional edge of agrifood tech innovation. From farmers, to innovators, researchers, corporations, government agencies and investors – and everyone in between. It’s two days to check out cutting edge-technologies and disruptive business models – oh and did we mention you can forge partnerships with a network of cutting edge innovators? If that’s not enough to get your boss (or if you’re the boss YOU) over the line, here are the top six reasons you should book your ticket.
1. One big event, two days and lasting connections
There’s an old saying; “it’s not what you know; it’s who you know.” And there’s arguably no industry where that’s truer than agriculture and its value chain. There’s no need to spend hours making online connections, at evokeAG. you’ll literally be sitting next to or standing in line with like-minded innovators, investors, decision makers and producers (among others).
- If you’re a producer you can leverage the best information and technology to push your productivity to the edge.
- If you’re an innovator this is a chance to share knowledge and solutions, speak with farmers and investors.
The networking opportunities are endless – from the founders in Startup Alley or Scaleup Station, through to our event partners and 1600 odd delegates – you can build those connections in the lunch line, Startup Alley, plenary session or for those who are a little more organised through our event app (launching in late 2024).
2. More than a two-day, full-scale global event
Western Australia is home to innovative farmers, a diverse range of industries, strong exporting experience and an established and vibrant agrifood tech innovation community. evokeAG. 2024 is about showcasing our exceptional edge to the world and helping our delegates – especially producers – find their cutting edge. evokeAG. 2024 will be held on Tuesday, 20 February and Wednesday, 21 February 2024 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The week will commence with the evokeAG. Welcome Event on the eve of evokeAG. Monday, 19 February and a number of sideline events hosted by evokeAG. partners will take place throughout the week.
3. Work on the business, not in it – just for a few days.
Most days, you’re working from sun-up to sun-down – racing from one job to the next. evokeAG. 2024 is two days out of the year to step away from the day-to-day and activate your big picture thinking to develop the strategy and connections to create a business that ‘works for you’ for the other “363 days” of the year. Think about it as working on your business, not in it – an investment in your enterprise that will deliver stable returns.
4. It’s not just any agrifood tech conference – it’s THE agrifood tech conference.
evokeAG. is the Asia Pacific regions’ premier agrifood innovation event for those involved in our food, fibre and fuel industries to showcase our exceptional edge when it comes to agtech, connect and collaborate. Since launching the evokeAG. concept in 2019, we’ve expanded our horizons every year expanding our reach into Asia, Europe and the Americas and our producer, innovator and investor delegates have pushed the boundaries of what can be achieved together.
We’re building on the success of evokeAG. 2023 which saw:
- 1600 delegates from 18 countries
- Startup Alley showcased 40 of our best and brightest agrifood tech innovators
- evokeAG.’s 2023 Investor Pitch Dinner saw five startups pitch to some of the world’s most influential agrifood tech investors, representing AUD$450B in capital
We’re bringing together thought-leaders and innovators for robust conversations as we stand at the edge of both complex challenges and exceptional opportunities. There are pivotal issues and opportunities demanding innovative solutions, from feeding the world, to addressing climate change and resource management. You want to be part of the conversation – and you’ll have a good time doing it – we know how to put on an event!
5. World-class food and wine and stunning scenery (maybe don’t tell your boss)
From the famed black truffles, marron and wines of the Margaret River Region to WA’s oldest wine region, the Swan Valley, it’s all a short drive from Perth. Western Australia’s food and wine trails are also set amongst some of the most spectacular scenery on earth. Perth boasts heritage buildings and striking modern architecture with art galleries and a stunning new museum, beautiful walking trails and beaches. Tack on a few extra days and explore the West. Get cracking and plan your trip.
6. You can’t afford to miss out.
Everyone is looking for an edge but everyone’s also very willing to share and collaborate. Your business rivals are probably going — can you afford to miss it?
