AgriFutures Australia managing director, John Harvey, revealed yesterday that evokeAG will be heading west.
Following on from two sell-out events in Melbourne in 2019 and 2020, Perth was named as the host city for the third edition of the agrifood technology event on 16-17 February 2021.
Embracing Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific, evokeAG. takes its inspiration from the diversity that the region has on offer. Perth will host evokeAG 2021, supported by the Western Australian Government's commitment to grow agriculture, fisheries and food industries.
"We designed evokeAG to be bold, brave and to bring together the Australia, New Zealand and Asia Pacific agrifood tech ecosystem. It is therefore critical that we view what we do through a different lens, experience a different location and embrace a different landscape in order to create a movement that will drive real change across the entire region," Harvey said.
"I encourage all of our delegates - innovators, businesses, entrepreneurs, primary producers, researchers, universities and corporates to join us in the west for another great instalment of food, farm, future in February 2021."
Harvey made the announcement at the end of the first day of evokeAG where more than 1300 attendees filled Melbourne's Royal Exhibition Building.
Harvey said evokeAG aims to inspire and challenge new ways of thinking.
"We are putting the Australian agrifood tech ecosystem on the global stage. In its second year, evokeAG. has attracted more delegates, more speakers, more farmers, more startups and more investors and it's tremendously exciting to see all parts of the ecosystem coming together to share their ideas and innovations on the future of our agricultural industry," he said.
