About the Summit

From Concept to Action: Towards a Sustainable, Healthy and Productive Livestock & Dairy Industry

Animal AgTech returns to San Francisco on March 21, 2022, for a full day of rich content and networking focused on innovation in animal health, nutrition and precision farming.

From carbon-smart innovations and early disease detection to precision farming, robotics and AI, this summit will address the pain-points and opportunities at the core of the US livestock and dairy industry.

As we strive towards a shared goal of producing more protein whilst using less resources, the world’s leading animal health and nutrition providers, producers, tech pioneers, entrepreneurs, and investors will meet under one roof for the first time in three years to share ideas, be inspired and identify future partners.

Through pre-arranged 1:1 meetings, networking events, roundtable discussions and those all-important corridor-connections, this is a summit where you can catch up with industry colleagues and forge the partnerships that will shape your business in 2022.

A full program of start-up activity, including pitching sessions, investor drop-ins and the Tech Hub exhibition makes this a summit where innovation flourishes and deals are done.

All sessions will be livestreamed, opening up the summit to a bigger global network than ever before. Whether joining us live or online, we hope to see you there!

Global Agri-Food Events


The Animal AgTech Innovation Summit accelerates innovation in animal health and welfare, sustainability, and farm to fork solutions. It meets three times a year, in San Francisco, Amsterdam and São Paulo.

The World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit is an international networking and deal-making event for global agribusinesses, solution providers, entrepreneurs and investors. Held three times per year in London, São Paulo and San Francisco, the goal of the summit is to accelerate the commercialization of advanced agricultural technologies by generating global partnerships and collaborations.

The Indoor AgTech Innovation Summit focuses on the role of vertical and indoor farming in serving local, regional and national food systems. Held in New York, the summit shares global best practice and looks at advances in AI, automation, lighting, environmental control and plant science that are set to transform these systems.  It connects operators, food brands, technology developers, plant scientists, food buyers, financiers and city planners ready to explore the new opportunities for investment and collaboration to scale this fast-emerging industry.

The Asia-Pacific Agri-Food Innovation Summit in Singapore addresses the most important challenges and opportunities in the Asia-Pacific agri-food system, from supporting the region’s smallholder farmers and building safer supply chains, to new frontiers in alternative proteins, indoor-farming, health and nutrition.
