evokeAG, Melbourne 19-20 February 2019
This trail-blazing, two-day event run by AgriFutures Australia will look at the important role Australia will play in creating and transforming the foods and farms of tomorrow.
Under the theme of `Food Farm Future’, the program will include masterclasses, breakout sessions, industry speakers and support for start-ups and agrifood tech businesses. Emerging new industries across the agrifood tech spectrum will also be discussed such as the role of robotics in farming, solutions for the water crisis and why we could one day be serving up a plate of grasshoppers instead of steak as an alternative protein.
evokeAG will bring together leading experts to discuss just what future generations will consume and how it will be produced.
Over two days, 50 guest speakers will take to the stage to discuss topics such as the popularity of nutrition, health and wellness markets, advances in wine production, the role of genetics and cell biology in agrifoods, robotics, global venture capital investments plus insight into the buying trends of Millennials and Gen Z.
