The 2017 World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit in San Francisco set new records in attendance, and formed the anchor event of the newly created Rethink Ag & Food Innovation Week. The summit attracted over 500 delegates for three days of intensive debate and networking, including an Innovation in Action tour, a start-up Demo Day, break-out workshops and more than 1000 1-1 meetings. Roundtable discussions generated some of the most advanced thinking in agri-tech: See below our Top Ten Take-Aways.
Launched in London in 2013, World Agri-Tech has established itself as a meeting place for international stakeholders dedicated to advancing sustainable agriculture in both developed and developing markets.
