The 2021 Agriculture Technology Innovation Summit AgTech Summit will pivot to a virtual platform and environment, but promises to be no less dynamic. Join us to explore how technology solutions are addressing some of the most significant challenges facing agriculture today – and learn about what is on the horizon. One of the premier AgTech hubs in the nation, Champaign-Urbana is uniquely positioned to bring together entrepreneurs, investors, academics, and industry for learning, networking and advancing this sector.

The AgTech Innovation Summit will take place on Wednesday, March 10. The Summit will be a FREE virtual event with scheduled sessions on leadership in agtech; supply chain; impacts of the pandemic and its silver linings; and insights from growers and producers. Join us for an hour or all day.

This interactive conference offers participants the opportunity to learn and share knowledge about the current state of agtech and looking into the future through dynamic panels, inspiring keynote presentations, and networking opportunities.
