If you are an investors, tech technocrat, exhibitors or a farmer, what better place can you be on the 11th and 12th of October, 2022, if not Santa Clara Convention Centre, California, for the tech event of the year?
But first, let me inform or refresh you about current statistic in the food industry.
It’s no longer news that the demand for global food production is expected to increase significantly in the coming decades, with a growing world population.
And if you add increasing pressure on water usage and sustainability, and recent world events like the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, which has pushed food security even further up the agenda, there has never been a hotter time in the agriculture technology market.
The implication of this for the people on planet earth who cannot survive without food in their stomachs is that this acute demand on farming simply cannot be met without the efficiencies that can be delivered through technology – and in very many cases, edge computing is a key element of those solutions.
Therefore, between 11th and 12th October 2022, thousands of people will gather at the Santa Clara Convention Centre, Silicon Valley, California, the United States of America to point the way forward for food security and sustainability.
And it will all be about building the new generation platforms and applications, with fifty companies expected to showcase the latest Apps and platforms.
It promises to be explosive, thrilling and eye-opening.
The event will feature over 125 Presenters, including Keynotes, Demos, Technical Insights and End User Case Studies.
Never before have so many edge end-users been gathered together in a single event to share their views and opinion on the benefits and challenges of deploying edge computing.
Edge Computing World (EWC) is partnering with Silicon Valley AgTech (SV) to make the event memorable and profitable for all participants.
SV AgTechs are also welcomed to deliver under the EWC umbrella, integrated into the ECW program.
Now in its tenth year, Silicon Valley AgTech has brought together thousands of farmers and growers, technology professionals and investors to drive forward the implementation of new agricultural technologies.
On its part, ECW is the premiere series of events for the Edge Computing space, recognized for bringing together the entire edge market for learning and networking.
ECW has a heavy emphasis on end-user case studies, sharing market experience for the benefit of the community.
