About the Summit

Accelerating the Transition to Sustainable and Resilient Agri-Food Systems

In its 10th year, the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit has become the annual meeting place for the global agtech industry.

As we celebrated a return to live events, the summit brought together leading agribusinesses, co-operatives, CPG brands, entrepreneurs, investors, and policy makers to accelerate the transition to sustainable and resilient agri-food systems.

From breeding resilience and diversity into the food system, to tackling labour shortages with robotics and automation, to supporting farmers to adopt new regenerative ag practices, the summit identified the technologies, finance and business models needed to deliver a greener, more food secure future.

With two days of in-person sessions and networking including panel debates, roundtables, fireside chats, start-up pitching and 1-1 networking, plus an online summit platform extending access around the globe, the summit facilitated knowledge exchange, high-value connections and long-lasting business relationships.
