Page last updated: Thursday, 30 January 2020 - 11:54am

The State Government, through the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD), is committed to attracting investment into Western Australia’s agribusiness, fisheries and food industries.

We are pleased to announce our Strategic Partnership of AgriFutures’ evokeAG 2020 conference.

Held in Melbourne from 18-19 February 2020, evokeAG will provide a common platform for the food and agriculture sector to exchange information and share best practices on how technology can and will shape the future. evokeAG will position the Australian, New Zealand and the Asia Pacific agrifood tech industries on the global stage.

About evokeAG

Pitched at entrepreneurs, farmers, investors, producers, start-ups, and professionals working in agribusiness, finance, and IT, the conference will explore the challenges ahead in technology and agriculture, and generate conversations around technology commercialisation and the enormous transformation underway in the food and agricultural sector.

The 2019 event attracted more than 1000 delegates from across Australia and internationally.

evokeAG have confirmed 70 expert speakers for the 2020 event, who will challenge conventions of what we grow, how we grow it and what we eat.
