In February 2020, a group of 15 primary producers from the Wakool Region were extended the opportunity to attend evokeAG at the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne. A premier Asia-Pacific agrifood tech event, evokeAg is a conference that explores what's next in the food tech space. Attending evokeAg and facilitating the excursion was Regionality Founder and Managing Director Rose Wright.
Tickets to the event were valued at $770. Through the Capacity Building facet of the Wakool Agri-Innovation Program, tickets and some travel expenses were funded by the Australian Government as a part of the Murray Darling Basin Economic Development Program.
Covering three key themes - food, farm, and future - evokeAg provides an opportunity for people to come together, collaborate, and share innovative agricultural ideas. This event is the only of its type where people come together to connect, collaborate on all things tech and food in agriculture.
