evokeAG. is making a big return to the iconic Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne, Australia on 18-19 February 2020. Our inaugural event was a sell-out and those wishing to attend in 2020 are encouraged to secure their early bird tickets online to guarantee their spot in new conversations on the event’s three key themes: food, farm and future.
Deniliquin mixed irrigation farmer Kellie Crossley said a personal highlight of the 2019 event was the opportunity to engage with the Israeli speakers and delegates.
“They have challenged traditional farming practices and are now world-leading innovators in the agricultural industry; their presentations were inspiring and thought provoking. I left evokeAG. feeling motivated and energised to apply new practices and technologies on farm,” said Ms Crossley.
We understand farmers are dealing with extremely tough conditions and don’t always have the luxury to be able to think about attending events so far down the track. To that notion, Ms Crossley said despite the conditions, producers who book tickets won’t have regrets.
“We left Deniliquin feeling pretty flat. We are in drought and had zero water allocation for irrigation. But when we got to the event our mood lifted – the panel sessions were so motivating and the networking was incredible.
“The emergence on new agricultural technologies is incredible, and Australian farmers need to be able to understand how they can apply this to their business to increase profit and remain sustainable. The event highlighted to us where farming in the future needs to go and gave us some alternative ideas on how this can happen.”
Beef producer from Wagga Wagga Michael Gooden said all producers should consider going to evokeAG. for the networking, and to see what’s coming up on the horizon.
“Rob McGavin and David Blackmore were some speakers from this year’s event which really resonated with me. They shared that similar story of ‘overnight success that took 30 years to build’ and it was a reminder that perseverance will pay off.”
