What is the Forbes AgTech Summit?

The Forbes AgTech Summit is an Invitation-Only gathering of over 500 of the smartest and most entrepreneurial minds in Silicon Valley and global agriculture to tackle some of the world’s most critical challenges. Held once again right in the heart of the Salinas Valley, the Summit fosters lively debate and generates rich networking opportunities while showcasing the latest innovations and startups for farmers, investors and stakeholders of the global agricultural ecosystem.

Growers, investors, start-ups and all interested stakeholders of the global agricultural ecosystem.

 

What is a Field Demo?

A Field Demo takes Summit Participants into a local field to see first-hand actual AgTech at work. Last year’s Field Demo featured a Lettuce Thinning Robot, several different types of Drones and a Self-Driving Tractor.

 

What is a Plant Tour?

A Plant Tour takes Summit Participants behind the scenes of a working Salinas Valley processing plant. Last year’s Summit featured an exclusive guided tour of Taylor Farms’ state-of-the-art vegetable processing plant. Participants witnessed first-hand the amazing automation that allows a head of lettuce harvested in the Salinas Valley to safely make its way to the salad shelf of a Whole Foods on the East Coast less than 72 hours later.

 

What is the Innovation Showcase?

The Innovation Showcase is a dedicated portion of the Summit highlighting the most innovative AgTech Start-Ups. Summit Participants will take advantage of the unique opportunity to talk business directly to Founders/CEOs in a relaxed setting.  Last year’s Showcase included 25 of the most interesting AgTech startups, including AgraLogics, DN2K, Vine Rangers and many more.
