The AgTech Conference of the South is Georgia’s first conference dedicated to innovation and entrepreneurship that is shaping the future of agriculture. This inaugural Conference will take place this July 23 – 25, 2018 in Alpharetta, Ga., at the new Alpharetta Conference Center at The Hotel at Avalon.

Agtech business executives and leaders, agtech startups, enterprise farmers, investors, university faculty, government, and other agtech enthusiasts will not want to miss this first-time Conference. Special early bird pricing is available until March 31, 2018.

Hosted by Tech Alpharetta, in partnership with the City of Alpharetta, the three-day Conference will address the explosive growth in agtech that has resulted from the intersection of agriculture and technology. With an emphasis on the farm-to-fork value chain, the event will feature an impressive list of speakers from leading organizations, such as ACGO, Syngenta, Microsoft, Proagrica, The Climate Corporation, Oracle, Georgia Institute of Technology, University of Georgia, and many more. Panel discussions and break-out sessions will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Agtech Innovation
  • Plant Genetics
  • Biotech

The Conference will also host an AgTech Startup Pitch Off at which agtech entrepreneurs will present to a panel of industry representatives whose companies consider potential partnerships with outside innovators.

AgTech Conference of the South will be held in Alpharetta, Georgia — the region’s epicenter of technology-fueled entrepreneurship and investment, at the new Alpharetta Conference Center. Boasting over 600 tech companies, Alpharetta has evolved far beyond its agricultural roots to foster technology innovation across industries that are defining the modern experience: agriculture, mobility, finance, technology, supply chain, and healthcare.
