Icon of Australian agribusiness – Elders – renews platinum partnership for AgriFutures evokeAG. 2023 event

Australian agribusiness icon, Elders, has renewed its commitment to Australian agrifood innovation, returning as the official Platinum Partner of AgriFutures evokeAG. 2023 event on 21-22 February 2023 in Adelaide, South Australia. evokeAG. is the Asia Pacific’s premier agrifood tech event aiming to bring together farmers, innovators, researchers, universities, corporates, government and investors to drive impact for farmers and the supply chain.

Elders Managing Director and CEO Mark Allison shaking hands with AgriFutures Managing Director John Harvey.

According to Elders Managing Director and CEO Mark Allison the time is now to connect and collaborate with the agricultural innovation community, with evokeAG. 2023 providing the perfect backdrop for these conversations.

“It’s an opportune time for Australian agriculture. The demand for safe, quality, Australian product is at an all-time high, and as a sector we’re well positioned for exponential growth as Australia’s neighbouring populations continue to grow and prosper,” said Mr Allison.

“We’re proud to once again be partnering with AgriFutures evokeAG. to deliver an international event to a domestic and international audience to catalyse the next generation of innovations that will continue to spur Australian agriculture into the future.

“We’re particularly excited to bring evokeAG. 2023 to Elders’ birthplace of South Australia. South Australia has a real and vital part to play in helping our sectors growth ambitions through the development, commercialisation and adoption of agrifood tech innovation supporting farmers to be more productive, efficient and sustainable.”


AgriFutures Managing Director, John Harvey welcomed the partnership and thanked Elders for its continued investment in agrifood innovation.

“We’re privileged to have Elders join us again as the Platinum Partner for evokeAG. 2023 – renewing a partnership we’ve enjoyed since the inaugural evokeAG. event in 2019.

“Elders has a 183-year legacy in enhancing on-farm innovation and supporting the growth of Australian agriculture. It is fitting, that the theme for evokeAG. 2023 is Down to Earth, where we’ll create the conversations and connections that’ll help drive innovation and growth on our farms,” said Mr Harvey.

To be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on 21-22 February 2023, evokeAG. 2023 Down to Earth will bring together the agrifood tech community to discuss how global agrifood innovation and tech collide, intersect, connect, translate, complement, and challenge our most important assets – our People, our farms, our soil, our water and our Earth.

Given the current global forces, according to Mr Harvey, next year’s event will play an even more crucial role in powering globally relevant conversations within the agrifood tech ecosystem.

“These challenges have 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, evokeAG. 2023 will bring together local and global minds from across the ecosystem to address these opportunities and challenges,” said Mr Harvey.

“Getting everyone in the same room is what makes evokeAG. so unique, and special.”
