Adelaide announced as host city for evokeAG. 2023 - Asia Pacific’s premier agrifood tech event

Following on from the success of two sell-out events in 2019 and 2020, evokeAG. organiser AgriFutures Australia, today announced Adelaide as the host city for the internationally acclaimed agrifood tech event slated for 21-22 February 2023 in South Australia.

The two-day, full-scale, global event will see thousands of delegates and over 110 speakers, thought leaders and startups from across the world convening to discuss food sustainability, supply chain demands and ways to increase agricultural capacity and profitability across the Asia Pacific region.

The diverse program aims to bring together – in one room – farmers, innovators, investors, scientists, corporates, and government. AgriFutures Australia hopes the event will continue to serve as the premier platform for solving the big issues facing the agricultural sector.

Off the back of the cancellation of evokeAG. 2021 and 2022 events (Perth and Sydney), AgriFutures Australia Managing Director, John Harvey, believes next year’s event will play an even more crucial role in powering globally relevant conversations within the agrifood tech ecosystem.

“The disruptive impact of the pandemic has highlighted serious shortfalls in our food security systems. There is an increasing sense of urgency around how we engage in global conversations, mitigate risk to our supply chain and challenge the conventions of what we grow, how we grow it and what we eat. Balance this with an extremely productive Australian agricultural landscape including big yields, and all-time high prices, the evokeAG. 2023 event brings together a collision of opportunities and challenges with the best local and global minds to solve some of these issues,” said Mr Harvey.

“We are excited to work alongside the Government of South Australia who are equally committed to highlighting the full potential of the agrifood tech community and drive real change across the entire region,” stated Mr Harvey.

Mirroring Mr Harvey’s sentiment, the Premier of South Australia, Steven Marshall MP said, “The Government of South Australia is proud to welcome the 2023 evokeAG. event to Adelaide, the most liveable city in Australia and the third most liveable city in the world.”

“In 2023, we’ll be welcoming international delegates back to the Asia Pacific region and attracting significant local and global capacity to drive investment in agrifood tech innovation. And importantly we’re also focused on making sure farmers are in the room to shape the conversation, help direct investment and connect with startups to see the opportunities for agritech to solve on-farm problems,” said Mr Harvey.

The Government of South Australia also predicts evokeAG. will play a role in the state’s re-opening efforts. “The event is projected to create 70 jobs, generate more than 8,000 bed nights with an economic boost to the state of $7.4 million”, concluded Premier Marshall.

Event details including speakers, startup and investment programs, networking opportunities, and sideline activities will be released in the coming months. Tickets are now on sale here.
