JULY 23-25, 2018

Welcome to the 2018 AG Tech Conference OF THE SOUTH

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:

  • Big Data in Agriculture 
  • AgTech Logistics and Supply Chain
  • State of the Region in Agtech 
  • 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.

Alpharetta is the Technology city of the south

Home to over 640 technology companies, Alpharetta is the Technology City of the South.  Founded in 1865, Alpharetta was an agricultural community with 3000 residents until the early 1990's.  When GA Highway 400 expanded into the northern suburbs as metro Atlanta grew, Alpharetta began to develop and quickly became the hub for technology companies to expand and locate. While founded as a city that grew cotton, now Alpharetta is the leader in growing technology businesses and innovation for the Metro Atlanta region.
