About the Summit

The 3rd edition of the World Agri-Tech South America Summit will bring together over 400 global leaders from across the agri-food value chain to cement the region’s role as a global agriculture powerhouse.

Held on June 28-29, the summit will combine a physical event at the Renaissance Hotel in São Paulo with a smart virtual platform to connect our in-person attendees with international participants joining us online. Through interactive panels, breakout roundtables and 1-1 meetings, the summit will draw a bigger network than ever before for two days of dialogue and deal-making.

The most influential growers, agribusinesses, food corporates, start-ups, investors, and government agencies will unite to shine a spotlight on South America’s growing agri-food innovation ecosystem, and highlight the partnerships needed for fast-tracking solutions to the field and scaling sustainable food production.

With a regional content focus and international delegation, the summit offers an invaluable platform for sharing best practice, making new connections, and forming long-lasting business partnerships.

An expert speaking faculty will tackle the critical issues of 2022 and the decade ahead:

  • Sustainable Agriculture: Developing an Integrated Approach to Environmental, Economic & Social Resilience
  • Carbon Sequestration: Standardising Measurement & Verification
  • Biologicals: Sustainable Input Solutions Driving Innovation in Crop Protection and Nutrition
