Perth will host evokeAG. on 15-16 February 2022

The Western Australian city of Perth will host evokeAG. on 15-16 February 2022

AgriFutures Australia in partnership with the Western Australian Government have postponed the evokeAG. 2021 event to 15 – 16 February 2022, in recognition of the unprecedented impact COVID-19 has had on the economy particularly on those businesses and participants who have invested in evokeAG..

AgriFutures Australia, Managing Director, John Harvey believes it is more important than ever to deliver on the objectives of evokeAG and provide optimism and enthusiasm to power growth and prosperity within the agrifood innovation system in Australia and the Asia Pacific region.

“It is our priority to maintain the momentum across the agrifood tech sector. We are exploring how we can continue to engage with the existing evokeAG. community by providing them with access to content and opportunities to engage on topics that align with the evokeAG. themes of Food, Farm, Future and ‘Collaborative thinking to change the future’.”

“We are looking to connect high profile keynote speakers, such as Jack Cowin, John Hartnett, Mike Lee and Rachel Neumann with the interested evokeAG. network. Our intention is to deliver premium content directly to a local and global audience through high-quality production across video, audio and written online formats. We will keep raising the bar and connecting the Asia Pacific region with the brightest minds in the world, and highlighting local talent to this same audience.”

“Keeping connected globally during a time of ‘no global travel’ is a priority, we have built a strong foundation from our international delegations and through trade agencies, like Austrade. Through high quality online engagement we intend to keep these connections growing,” said Mr Harvey.

“Since 2019, evokeAG. has built a rapidly growing community that is hungry to hear from global leaders in agrifood tech and innovation, collaborate with others and build global pathways. evokeAG. now has a digital following that dwarfs the number of delegates that attend the physical events. More than 2,500 people have attended evokeAG and over 30,000 people follow or subscribe to the evokeAG. social channels, videos, podcasts and newsletter content all year-round.”

Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development, Western Australia Director General Ralph Addis said driving innovation and increasing adoption of technology across the agrifood supply chain was a key priority.

“We remain committed to supporting Western Australia’s dynamic agrifood innovation ecosystem and showcasing this to the global community,” Mr Addis said.

“We look forward to evokeAG. bringing together delegates from around the world and across Australia to connect, collaborate and look to the future possibilities of agrifood tech – here in Perth in 2022.”

evokeAG. 2022 will be held at Claremont Showgrounds on the 15-16 February 2022. Stay in the loop by signing up to the evokeAG. updates or to have your content featured, email [email protected]
