Agriculture like many sectors of the UK and global economy is going through a huge transition. Whether it’s internal processes or the changing external environment, business must lead and react to secure on-going success. Agriculture’s green revolution has been surpassed, now we face the ‘digital revolution’.

There is much talk of Big Data within agriculture and this will continue to revolutionise business. On top of this BREXIT will be a key feature that will shape and form UK agriculture as well as our renegotiations with the EU. This could lead to a seismic change in the way UK agriculture and agribusiness is conducted in the future.

Agribusiness 2017 will address these key issues from a political, technological and business standpoint to make members and stakeholders fully aware of these key issues thanks to our diverse line up of leading speakers. The AIC team and I look forward to welcoming you to Agribusiness 2017 for a stimulating day.
