As the backbone of the global food supply chain, agriculture and horticulture are essential to meeting the increasing demand for sustainable, high-quality produce as the world's population continues to grow. But the agricultural industry faces a minefield of challenges, from labour shortages to supply chain disruptions that are increasingly capturing global attention. In this complex landscape, it has become more vital than ever to understand the real issues faced 'on-farm', to explore diverse and innovative solutions, and discover the role of technology in shaping and delivering the future of the agricultural industry.

Spotlight on Farmers
As we dive into the heart of agriculture, we put farmers in the spotlight to give unique perspectives on the industry’s challenges. Our featured farmers will give you a glimpse into the lives of those who work to bring food from farm to table. Through these diverse experiences, we aim to demonstrate both the shared problems and the specific nuances that shape the agricultural landscape - and how you can be part of it.
Our event will help you to understand how cutting-edge technologies are revolutionising various facets of agriculture, and where gaps remain that require urgent solutions. Whether it's digitizing vineyards or managing one of the largest national farming companies in the UK, you'll learn first-hand how technology can, and is, shaping the future of agriculture.
