Following the success of the inaugural AgTech Summit 2018, we’re delighted to be working closely with the sector to bring to life a thriving event in it’s second year.

The event will bring together all key stakeholder groups in agriculture from established players in the industry to game changing start-ups that have global potential, from traditional agriculture businesses to fully automated farms. This national forum will facilitate a much-needed conversation around the direction of agriculture technologies and the industry at large both domestically and internationally.

With groundbreaking developments arising rapidly in vertical farming, robotics, artificial intelligence, machine learning etc, players in agriculture are now being challenged more so than ever before to transform alongside an evolutionary and dynamic industry.

Together with a high caliber of speakers and supporting partners Cicada and SproutX, the 2nd annual AgTech Summit will explore how technology is revolutionising a traditional Australian industry, and provide insight on how Australia will maintain its competitiveness on a global scale.

A snapshot of the topics to be covered include:

  • Vertical and precision farming
  • Robotics and IoT technology
  • CRISPR and biotechnology
  • Supply chain automation and yield management optimization
  • Critical infrastructure
  • Artificial intelligence and machine learning applications in agriculture
