About this event

To whom it may concern!

We cordially invite you to the next Frankfurt - Tel Aviv B2B Talks.

The war in Ukraine, advancing climate change, the growing world population – agriculture is under massive pressure to ensure food security while reducing resource consumption. That’s why it is so important to work hand in hand not only across the entire value chain, but also across countries and jointly bring solutions for these challenges to the fields. The Frankfurt Tel Aviv B2B Talks on Agtech Innovations will be a platform for an elaborated business exchange between decision-makers from companies, associations, organizations, politics, plus investors and farmers. In addition to keynote speeches by top-tier experts from both countries, companies from Israel will present their innovative Agtech solutions. Plus: There will be time to speak with each other, discuss and develop common ideas and projects.
