KPMG Agri-Food Tech & Internet of Farms Traction Tours

KPMG Agri-Food Tech & Internet of Farms Traction Tours are an opportunity for executives to access unique insight to emerging agri-food technology from leading agri-food locations around the world.

The tours are designed to open up exclusive insights and connect businesses and research entities with the intention to enable innovation deal flows and help leaders develop global mindsets. Before each tour we engage with interested participants to focus the program to meet their needs.

This in-market program is designed based on three key goals:

  • To demonstrate to tour participants organisations how governments, research institutions, public and private companies and startups in successful and high growth markets have developed their ecosystems and embraced disruptive technologies in agri-food production;
  • To create a network of willing and aligned leaders amongst the delegation to come back from the tour and drive different thinking and initiatives to accelerate collaboration and technology adoption across their local agri-food sector; and
  • Establish trade and knowledge relationships between organisations and countries.

Led by Ben van Delden, KPMG Australia’s Head of Agri-Food Tech, Piers Hogarth Scott, KPMG’s Head of Internet of Things, and Michael Dean, AgFunder Inc’s Chief Investment Officer, these behind the scenes tours provide exclusive insights and inclusive learning that ignite new thinking in agri-food innovation that will drive real opportunities for growth in agriculture. Participating in KPMG’s Agri-Food Tech Traction Tour means you will be aware of the new technologies and business models changing our global food landscape and be better equipped to lead your business to seize opportunities for growth.

Delegates from the 2018 Netherlands Agri-Food Tech Traction Tour were unanimous in their assessment that the tour exceeded their expectations and they would highly recommend participating in future tours. They had this to say:

“Accelerated my understanding of best practice Agri tech, implications and practical applications for our organisation. It also helped me build a new international network.”

“I valued the tour because of the perspectives I received from the scale of operations in Holland and the use of agritech (or non agritech) in achieving that scale.”

“The tour program overall was very well targeted and thought through for benefits”

“The KPMG Netherlands team were great - flexible and responsive. KPMG Australia team were very professional and supportive of team and individual learning.”
