About the Summit

Impactful Collaboration in Animal Health, Sustainability and Welfare

The Animal AgTech Innovation Summit returned to Amsterdam to accelerate innovation, investment and collaboration across the European livestock and poultry industries. Held on October 12-13, 2022, the summit provided animal agtech leaders with a platform for critical discussions, networking and partnership development.

In the last year, animal agriculture has faced unprecedented pressure across the supply chain. The growing threat of climate change has been coupled with increasing public interest in animal health, welfare and sustainability, creating an urgent need for the sector to innovate, collaborate and communicate more effectively.

The summit brought together producers, animal health providers, nutrition companies, technology developers, retailers and investors to collaborate towards creating a smarter, more resilient animal agriculture industry.

With two days of in-person sessions and networking including panel debates, roundtables, fireside chats, start-up pitches, and 1-1 networking, plus an online summit platform extending access around the globe, the summit facilitated knowledge exchange, high-value connections and long-lasting business relationships to move the industry forward.
