The German Agricultural Society (DLG) and VNU Asia Pacific, in collaboration with the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, Thailand, is organising the highly anticipated AGRICONNECT Conference & Exhibition 2023, held from 24-25 May in Bangkok, Thailand

The event, which is currently taking place at True Digital Park in Bangkok, is a global platform that brings together more than 300 participants, including agricultural experts, industry leaders, researchers, policymakers, and farmers, all committed to advancing sustainable agricultural practices and fostering innovation.

Under the theme 'Eco-efficiency: solutions for environmental farming business,' AGRICONNECT 2023 aims to address the most pressing challenges facing the agriculture industry today. The event will showcase cutting-edge technologies, best practices, and collaborative solutions that can drive positive change and contribute to a more resilient and efficient agriculture sector. 

The conference, which is the highlight of the event, features a stellar lineup of renowned speakers and thought leaders sharing their insights and experiences. 

The event features more than 45 speakers from 10 countries and innovation-driven sponsors. Keynote speakers and representatives from international organisations, United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP), the Asia Pacific Association of Agricultural Research Institutions (APAARI) and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), are sharing their best practices and solutions in more than 15 sessions, thereby giving attendees the opportunity to gain valuable knowledge, engage in meaningful discussions, and forge strategic partnerships that can shape the future of sustainable agriculture.

Narapat Kaeothong, Thailand’s Vice Minister of Agriculture and Cooperatives said, “On behalf of the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives, it is a great pleasure and honour to be here to deliver the Opening Remarks of the AGRICONNECT Conference and Exhibition 2023, which is the event for sharing and preparing the solutions for tomorrow’s agribusiness challenges and environmental impacts, as a co-host today. From the ministry’s point of view, eco-efficiency in agriculture is also essential to protect the environment. It aims to achieve more with less—more agricultural outputs, in terms of quantity and quality, for less input of land, water, nutrients, energy, and labour. I believe that this forum will benefit us all and I wish everyone will gather knowledge and experience to meet all objectives successfully.”

The first AGRICONNECT Conference & Exhibition is affiliated with AGRITECHNICA ASIA and HORTI ASIA, Southeast Asia's leading exhibitions in agriculture. Both exhibitions will take place again at BITEC, Bangkok, from 22-24 May 2024.
