Organisers say the event has a new name and a sharpened focus and will highlight the potential and opportunity in the agricultural innovation sector.

Organised by ACM Rural Events, AgSmart Connect will be held 6-7 March next year, where it was first staged in 2022.

Lupe Prada, commercial manager, ACM Rural Events, said the change from AgSmart Expo to AgSmart Connect was a reflection of the renewed emphasis on not only presenting new technology updates and developments, but also giving attendees the ideas and knowledge to put them into practice in their own agricultural businesses.

"Three years on, we're more than an expo now, so we wanted to make the information and education seminars the heart of the event," Prada said.

"This event is about education and bringing people together. Connecting them through agri-innovation, AgSmart Connect will be a forum for agri-innovation providers to engage with farmers, investors and the agri-curious from across the industry.

"We want to show ag technology innovation is accessible to anyone who wants to grow the profitability and viability of their business."

AgSmart Connect will be held at the Tamworth Regional Entertainment and Conference Centre (TRECC), with seminar rooms for speakers at the centre of the event space and the exhibitor stands wrapping around these speaker areas.

A new feature next year is the addition of an outdoor networking space with food trucks, and a business lounge for exhibitors.

"As well as being an educational and seminar-led event, it's also a platform for suppliers of agricultural and agro-industrial products, services and technology nationally to connect and explore new opportunities and perspectives that could benefit and grow their own businesses," Lupe said.
