Tom Nassif, president & CEO of Western Growers, will be presenting the keynote address during the Ag Innovation Showcase on May 8 – 9, 2017, at UC Davis. The showcase inspires discussions about trends in the ag industry and presents innovations from around the world—everything from the farmer to the consumer, from climate-smart technologies to advanced food safety solutions.

During this event, rising entrepreneurs from start-up companies will join with agtech investors from this booming sector and researchers at the forefront of innovation. The showcase will highlight world-class research in crop, animal and food science, as well as high-impact programs that energize ideas and accelerate the path of innovation to the marketplace.

The event kicks off on May 8 with a company showcase and roundtable discussions on food safety, drones/robotics, and food and beverage processing. Former WG Chairman Vic Smith [JV Smith Companies] will be one of the industry leaders speaking about agtech advancements during the drones and robotics roundtable.

The second day of the conference begins with Nassif delivering a keynote address about innovation and technology as it relates to food and agriculture. The event will conclude with panel sessions, discussing “The Digital Farm” and nutrition and food quality. Robert Morris of TerrAvion, a resident of Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology, will be a key panelist during “The Digital Farm” discussion.
