Perth will welcome visitors from across the world when it hosts Australia's premier agrifood tech event in February 2021

Western Australia will be on the international stage in February 2021, set to host the AgriFutures Australia evokeAG conference.

Focused on the future of the agrifood tech space, evokeAG attracts more than 1000 delegates from around the world and across Australia to connect, collaborate and look to the future possibilities of agrifood tech.

The opportunity to hold evokeAG in WA was led by the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) and Business Events Perth, and supported by the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation (JTSI).

WA is focused on value-add, agtech and foodtech to diversify the economy and take advantage of our environment, climate, proximity and quality aspects of food, farm and future.

DPIRD’s Agribusiness, Food and Trade Executive Director Liam O’Connell is a key supporter of the event which will provide an ideal platform to showcase the State’s capabilities and attract potential investors and customers from around Australia and strategic markets across the Asia Pacific region. 

With an already burgeoning agtech scene, hosting a vibrant Agtech meet-up group and a series of Perth and regional accelerator and innovation hub opportunities, evokeAG will further highlight WA as an investment destination to international and domestic investors and agtech businesses.

As the gateway to key international markets, WA is in a prime position to meet the growing demand for innovative opportunities, fresh produce and high quality agrifood production.

DPIRD is looking forward to welcoming delegates from Eastern Australia and around the world to take a fresh look at the possibilities on offer in WA.

evokeAG will be held in Perth on 16 and 17 February 2021.  Stay tuned for more details!
