Victoria is proud to host and be part of the first evokeAG conference in February 2019.

From farm-to-plate, innovation, big data and soil monitoring to the impact of food waste, future food and the disruption of climate change, evokeAG is bringing together leaders, entrepreneurs, innovators and thinkers to help shape the future of agribusiness.

Are we ready to start consuming meals from the lab instead of the paddock? With scientists working towards producing finless fish and chickenless eggs, this dilemma could soon be a reality.

This is just one of the many topics that will be open for discussion between a number of world-class experts at evokeAG .

Under the theme of `Food Farm Future’, the newly released program will include masterclasses, breakout sessions, industry speakers and support for start-ups and agrifood tech businesses.

Emerging new industries across the agrifood tech spectrum will also be discussed, such as the role of robotics in farming, solutions for the water crisis and why we could one day be serving up a plate of grasshoppers instead of steak as an alternative protein.

AgriFutures Australia, General Manager, Communications and Capacity Building Belinda Allitt said the global event will bring together leading experts to discuss just what future generations will consume and how it will be produced.

This will be a trail-blazing two-day event run by AgriFutures Australia to unearth and explore the important role Australia will play in creating and transforming the foods and farms of tomorrow. So whether you're a farmer, a tech business, an innovator, a researcher, an investor, an entrepreneur, a foodie or a futurist, this is the event for you.
