Newly rebranded Business Events Perth has delivered the successful bid to bring Asia Pacific’s largest agri-tech event, evokeAG, to Western Australia in 2021.
The event which will draw agri-tech delegates from more than 20 countries to Perth.
“Securing the evokeAG conference for Perth is a great opportunity for Western Australia to showcase our expertise in the agri-tech sector to the world,” said Business Events Perth chief executive officer Gareth Martin.
“Primary industries and tourism are part of the six priority economic sectors identified for growth by Diversify WA and Business Events Perth is focused on securing more conference events in these sectors as a key catalyst to promote a thriving economy in Western Australia.”
evokeAG will be held on 16-17 February 2021 and is expected to attract around 1500 delegates.
For the past two years evokeAG has been held in Melbourne.
“It is testament to the strength of Western Australia’s agri-tech sector that this will be the first time the event has been held outside of Victoria,” Martin said.
Business Events Perth partnered with the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and the Department of Jobs, Tourism, Science and Innovation to secure the event.
