The World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit (virtual this year, usually in San Francisco) gathers 1,000+ global agri-food corporates, investors and technology start-ups from around the world to uncover the most exciting innovations in the agri-food sector and to forge the right partnerships to take those solutions to market.

The global food system is undergoing a huge transformation fuelled by demand for responsible food production and greater food security in the wake of the on-going pandemic. As these priorities rise to the top of the agenda, the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit’s eighth global forum will gather corporates, innovators and investors from across the agriculture and food production supply chain to uncover disruption within the industry and identify the right business models to commercialize and scale the next generation of solutions.

Get ready for a new online and more interactive experience: Fireside chats, high level panel discussions and unscripted debates, where the audience takes control of the conversation with the world’s leading agribusinesses, food brands, growers, entrepreneurs, and investors; a start-up showcase arena; interactive roundtable discussions on critical business challenges hosted by industry leaders; and a new spin on free-form networking that will make it possible for our World Agri-Tech community to create connections, continue conversations and build new partnerships.

By sharing best practice from around the globe, and facilitating new connections and collaborations, the summit offers an invaluable platform to develop new business partnerships and accelerate the pace of innovation as we build a more secure, sustainable and resilient food system.

All participants can schedule video 1-1 meetings with potential partners and clients throughout the summit, and for an extended period before and after the sessions, and all content will be available to watch On Demand for a month.
