The Flight of the Honeybees

Globally, honeybees are the largest pollinator of food crops- and innovations in AI, robotics, sensors, and data are being leveraged to address the important issue of the declining bee population.
 

This year, in advance of World Honeybee Day, we will bring together industry players, and the agtech community from across the globe for a  2-Day Virtual Conference on August 18 & 19th to share their insight on the honeybee’s role in crop pollination, the latest technologies being deployed, biodiversity & our environment, and the importance of honeybees to our food supply – from farm to table.

 
We will also host a pitch competition, bringing in startups from around the world whose disruptive technologies will help shape the future of our crops and our honeybees.
 

Conference Agenda
