The Leaders Forum in Agtech and Sustainability

 International professionals across the supply chain come together to share initiatives and spur innovation.  

08 / 05 / 2019 

(Miami, Fl., October, 2019) - SDL, an independently organized event series, announced the second round of speakers to conduct presentations during the inaugural event this October 22-24, 2019, featuring CEOs, directors and other pioneering figures in sustainability strategy and agtech.  

The forum will take place inside the James L Knight Center in Miami, Florida. Featured topics include: long term sustainability across our supply chain sectors; soil health and its climate impact; the role of ground level farmers in a fast moving, innovative agricultural future.   

SDL introduces new drop-in roundtables for the October Miami forum. The goal for these first come, first serve conversations is to encourage attendees to drop into a free-thinking conversation, delving into new ideas and cooperative solutions. Tables will be scheduled pre-event and each based around a headline topic, curated and led by leaders in the AgTech community. Topics and table hosts will be announced in the coming weeks. 

Alongside SDL’s already confirmed speakers including MARS, Airbnb and Microsoft, a second round of international thought-leaders have been confirmed:
