- Second Digital Agrifood Summit to be held at Charles Sturt University in Wagga Wagga in October 2023
- ‘Paddock to Profit’ theme to explore data-driven solutions to increase value and drive sustainability across supply chains in Australia’s agrifood sector
On the back of last year’s success, the Digital Agrifood Summit will return to Wagga Wagga on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 October 2023, bringing together experts in everything digital, data and agrifood.
This year’s theme, Paddock to Profit, will examine how Australia’s agrifood industry can apply data-driven solutions to increase value and drive sustainability across supply chains.
The Digital Agrifood Summit is a partnership between Charles Sturt University, Food Agility CRC and Charles Sturt’s Agrisciences Research and Business Park (AgriPark).
It features leading Australian and international speakers, presentations of the latest research and innovation projects, an exhibition hall of commercially available technology, a tour of the Global Digital Farm, and a Gala Dinner, which was a crowd favourite in 2022.
Charles Sturt Vice-Chancellor, Professor Renée Leon, PSM, said the University campus in Wagga Wagga – which houses the Global Digital Farm and AgriPark - was the perfect location for the event.
“We bring together leading scientists with commercial ag-tech businesses to innovate on a real working farm. We’ve planted the seeds, now the future of farming and food supply is blooming in Wagga Wagga,” Professor Leon said.
Food Agility CEO, Mr Richard Norton said the inaugural event in 2022 had a great atmosphere as people connected, learned and got their boots dirty.
“This year will have the same focus on practical innovation, featuring insights, systems and tools that can make a real difference to the ongoing profitability and sustainability of food production,” Mr Norton said.
“It’s important that we step out of the capital cities and take the discussion around the future of agriculture and food supply into the regions where our food is grown.”
Presenters, panellists and tours will be announced over the coming months.
People can register their interest in attending via the Global Digital Farm website and companies interested in sponsoring or exhibiting are encouraged to get in touch.
