Agri-Tech Week: REAP Conference 2017

Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre, Hinxton, Cambridge CB10 1RQ

REAP 2017

Save the date: Tuesday 7th November 2017


With the theme Today’s Knowledge Meets Tomorrow’s Technology we will explore the best of what is happening now and how new ideas and technology is shaping the future.

REAP brings together a diverse and highly engaged group of delegates from across the UK and beyond to develop new opportunities to help agriculture meet the challenges ahead.

REAP 2017 will see the return of two new features we launched at REAP 2016:

  • The highly successful “Emerging Agri-Tech” session, where we introduced some of the most farmer-focused and relevant research informing the industry, being carried out by early career stage scientists.
  • The technical exhibition, where the vibrant technology community developing new tools and products for agriculture had the opportunity to speak directly to farmers and gain industry insights and market profile.

We’ll also be presenting the 2017 line-up of early stage agri-tech companies in our regular Start-Up Showcase. Previous Showcase companies have enjoyed significant successes after being featured, either attracting investment, co-development partners, or new clients as a result.

Now in its 4th year, the REAP conference is Agri-Tech East’s annual conference, delivered as part of our partnership Agri-Tech Week programme.

The aim of REAP is to bring together progressive farmers and growers with leading edge researchers and technology developers, alongside key representatives of the agri-tech value chain, to enhance market pull and accelerate the route for new agricultural innovations to become commercially available.

Make sure to keep your diary clear on Tuesday 7th November 2017!
