Born with the belief that continuous innovation in agriculture is the only way to sustainably feed nine billion people by 2050, the Global Forum for Innovations in Agriculture has emerged as a global authority on sustainable food production, driving innovation through exhibitions and conferences across the world. Since 2014, GFIA events have welcomed over 25,000 visitors and worked with over 50 globally significant partners committed to using the Forum as a catalyst for change.
Global Vision. Local Relevance.
With established events in the Middle East and Europe, GFIA is now extending its reach into Australasia with the launch of GFIA in Focus Australia.
Showcasing the latest game-changing innovations and technology, each GFIA in Focus event offers 80 suppliers and 2,000 buyers a pioneering forum and marketplace to connect in markets that are expected to experience significant growth over the next few years.
GFIA in Focus Australia.
The Australian Government wants Australian agriculture to become a $100 billion industry by 2030 by ‘growing sustainably’ whereby the industry should aim to be carbon neutral by 2050 and; ‘unlocking new technology’ with a favorable tax and policy environment for innovation, connecting every farm to the Internet of Things, and the co-investment into technology development by the government and private sector.
GFIA Australia is located in Queensland because the Queensland Government is aiming to double agricultural output in the State by 2040 delivering vast business opportunity to ag-tech suppliers that are positioned to contribute to this movement. Home to 23,000 farms, Queensland is the largest supplier of fresh fruit and vegetables to Australian consumers, producing 24% of the total gross value of agricultural production in Australia. It is also a prolific livestock producer and Australia’s largest cattle producer.
Hosting two adjacent exhibitions (one presenting solutions in controlled environments and protected cropping and another showcasing products for the precision agriculture and smart farming sector) and high-level conference programme, GFIA in Focus will present the latest innovations and technologies for smart food production to 2,000 food producers, policy makers, scientists and investors.
