About the Summit
Launched in London in 2013, and running twice a year in San Francisco and London, the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit has established itself as the most influential meeting place for international stakeholders dedicated to advancing sustainable agriculture in both developed and developing markets. Focused on identifying the best models for successful technology commercialization, the summits bring together experts from around the world to share best practices and case studies and to identify the most exciting opportunities for innovation and investment.
Now in its 5th year, the San Francisco summit gathered 1300+ global agri-food corporates, innovators and investors who all uncovered the most exciting innovations in the agri-food sector, forging the right partnerships to take those solutions from the laboratory to the field and food systems. With its theme ‘Turning Disruptive Technology into Business Strategy through Partnership and Collaboration’, the 2019 program explored the business models and partnerships needed to scale new technologies and transform the food supply chain into a more sustainable, affordable and nutritious system for future generations. Key topics included: Predictive Agriculture, Automation, Robotics, AI-backed Genomics and Biological Discovery Platforms.
Each year World Agri-Tech attracts important delegations from Europe, Israel, Asia and Australia and is where valuable business connections are made to accelerate the transition of technology from the laboratory to the field.
