About the Summit

The 2nd edition of the World Agri-Tech South America Summit welcomed over 700 industry leaders for 1:1 networking, interactive group discussions, start-up pitches and critical market intelligence on catalyzing financial and environmental sustainability across the agri-food value chain.

Over two days of online content and networking, participants had the chance to hear from the leading farm operators, agribusinesses, equipment manufacturers, start-ups and investors in South America and beyond – exploring how the regional agri-food industry has thrived, despite of a year of global disruption.

With a regional focus while attracting an international delegation, this is a platform where valuable business connections will be made to accelerate the transition of technology from the laboratory to the field.
