Grain Central February 21, 2024

BRISBANE has been named as next year’s host city for the EvokeAG agtech innovation conference, which is expected to attract more than 2000 delegates.

The announcement was made this week at the 2024 EvokeAG conference in Perth, which is being attended by more than 1800 delegates from across the Asia-Pacific region.

The conference, organised by Agrifutures Australia, connects the global agrifood innovation community of investors, entrepreneurs, agtech service providers and agribusiness professionals.

It provides a digital platform and a premier agrifood tech event where farmers share their experiences, startups pitch their potential, scientists showcase their discoveries, global business leaders share their insights, and industry experts debate their opinions.

The 2025 event will be supported by the Commonwealth Government, Elders, the Qld Government, and the Brisbane Economic Development Agency.

Qld Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries and Minister for Rural Communities Mark Furner said agtech was a strong part of the sustainable future of agriculture.

“Bringing this event to Queensland reinforces the Queensland Government’s commitment to AgTech and adoption,” Mr Furner said.

“The AgTech Roadmap we completed with industry last year and our investments in agtech through the Gatton Smart Farm and the Smart Cropping Centre in Emerald show we are backing our producers with real investments.

” I have no doubt Queensland’s agriculture sector will make the most of this event and ensure next year’s EvokeAg held in Brisbane will be the best yet.”

Queensland chief entrepreneur Julia Spicer from Goondiwindi said innovation is central to Qld farming.

Queensland agriculture has an innovative culture – our farmers have instinctively turned to innovation to solve some of the big faming challenges in Australia, including dealing with drought, floods, pests, soil quality, remote locations, livestock monitoring, and transport and logistics,” Ms Spicer said.

“This in turn is driving a strong homegrown agtech sector – technologies and innovations developed for farming in some of the toughest conditions in the world.
