A wrap up of EvokeAG 2019
Presented by AgriFutures and sponsored by the Victorian Government, EvokeAG was held in February 2019. AgriFutures invests in research, leadership, innovation and learning to support industries that do not have their own research and development function.

With over 1,000 participants, the inaugural conference held at the Exhibition Buildings in Melbourne was a resounding success.

Running over two days, the conference brought together both large and small businesses in the AgTech sector to show case their wares, make new connections and build their business.

See our article on EvokeAG on the FIN.
