Technology Companies to Offer Insights at CropWorld 2012

25 October 2012

UK - CropWorld Global 2012, to be held on 6th and 7th November at the QEII Conference Centre in London, is introducing a brand new aspect to the conference proceedings this year with the launch of The Partnering Forum, a two hour workshop featuring business insights from a panel of leading industry experts.

This year's forum showcases three SMEs who are developing unique and innovative technologies for the improvement and sustainability of crop protection and production.

The workship will be chaired by Edward Mott, CEO at Oxford Capital Partners, Martin Brown, CEO at Exosect, Hadyn Parry, CEO at Oxitec and John Brubaker, CEO at Plant Impact, who will impart their invaluable experience in developing and launching new technologies into the crop protection sector and will explain how this knowledge has shaped their current business strategies.

CropWorld Global Director, Terri D'Elia comments: "Although each of these companies are developing quite unique technology, they each have in common the fact that they are operating within an industry dominated by multinational corporations. However they are part of an emerging sector of young and dynamic innovation companies which are bringing new and sustainable technologies for food production to the fore. In the last few weeks alone the industry has witnessed key acquisitions by multinationals of emerging companies who have developed environmentally sustainable technology and it will be of great interest to learn how similar companies are evolving to establish themselves within this competitive market."

The panel will offer practical, first hand advice on successfully launching new products and innovations to market including the challenges, opportunities and secrets to success. This is an opportunity for researchers from commercial and academic research organisations and senior executives from newly emergent companies, working across all agricultural development areas to learn more about the various strategic options of bringing new technology to the agricultural sector.
