Last week, the Trimble Agriculture Latin America (LATAM) team represented Trimble as a key participant in the World Agri-Tech Innovation Summit in South America on July 29 and 30.

This collaborative virtual event served as a platform for some of the biggest players in the agriculture industry to discuss the most cutting edge technology on the market and how it can create a more connected, sustainable industry.

Virtual Connection

From the latest technology in AI to remote sensing, IOT and more, participants had the opportunity to share ideas and initiatives with other ag leaders and innovators around the world.

In the first-ever virtual edition of the event, key speakers communicated solutions and strategies to improve efficiency, resiliency, and sustainability in South America’s agriculture and livestock farming sectors. Participants engaged in individual meetings, interactive group discussions and startup proposals, and listened to critical intelligence from industry leaders.

Global Reach

Trimble Agriculture Latin America Director of Sales Abe Hughes was one such speaker at the global event, serving as an expert resource on essential industry topics.

According to Hughes, the event’s central objective is to promote interactive group discussions and global leaders to evaluate solutions for the industry to emerge from the current crisis.

“Trimble was one of the main supporters for the event to take place in Brazil,” said Hughes. “We are fully satisfied to offer such an exclusive and enriching content for agribusiness in the country.”

Trimble Inc. was a Gold Partner of the event. Key themes of the 2020 South America summit included precision agriculture technology, agricultural management, artificial intelligence and automation, investment and incubation, and more.
