What is the Global Agripreneurs Summit and Why Should I Participate?
The Global Agripreneurs Summit is an assembly of agrifood innovators and leaders from around the world – where farmers, agripreneurs, chefs, investors, organisations, policy makers, and other thought leaders work together to help bring life to game changing innovations, and propel agriculture as a sustainable source of growth and economic development. Every year, the Summit travels to a new destination, from Colombia 2016, to South Africa 2017, to Turkey 2018, and now in Greece 2019, to energize the traditional agrifood industry into an innovative space.
The 4th Global Agripreneurs Summit will take place in Thessaloniki, Greece on September 7-11, 2019 within the context of the Thessaloniki International Fair, the most important exhibition event in Greece with more than 263,000 visitors and inaugurated every year by the Prime Minister.
The Summit will host the renowned FAC Global Championships: the Olympics of Agripreneurship showcasing cutting-edge solutions from around the world to award the Agripreneur of the Year. It will be proceeded by targeted workshops and trainings. The global stage will present influencers and controversial voices from the field of sustainability, food security, production and traceability to engage in intellectual pursuits. B2B meetings will encourage farmers, startups, industry experts and stakeholders to participate in new synergies and cross border opportunities. While policy roundtables will accelerate the global dialogue between policy makers and innovators.
A Global Dialogue Envisioning the Future Farmer 4.0
This year, the 4th Global Agripreneurs Summit has centered its theme as "Defining the Future Farmer 4.0". Envisioning how technology will transform the farmer, food, and nutrition. What will the current role of the farmer become? What changes will this create in the food industry? How will we address nutrition in this new dialogue? What new models will the food logistics industry absorb? What skills will be needed for the future farmer? How can traditional farmers prepare for agriculture 4.0? Should robots substitute current farmer roles or do farmers play a substantial role beyond what robots are able to offer us? This year we will embark on a better understanding of the future farmer.
