The Digital Agrifood Summit is part capital city conference, part field day, all held in the vibrant regional location of Wagga Wagga, NSW.
A considered program featuring international and Australian experts is complemented by guided tours of the Global Digital Farm, an exhibition hall showcasing the leading agtech solutions.
The Summit also provides plenty of networking opportunities across social events and guided workshops.
Food Agility, Charles Sturt University, and AgriPark organise the Digital Agrifood Summit to showcase the innovation and collaboration occuring in regional NSW.
DAS attracted over 450 delegates to Wagga Wagga in its first two years, 2022 and 2023.
Additionally, over 150 high-school students from over 10 participating schools attend DAS to draw inspiration in what can be acheived through a career in agriculture.
All delegates are able to take a tour of the Global Digital Farm (GDF). An integrated digital learning, innovation and research environment working within a full-scale, commercial, mixed farm operation, the GDF is becoming the benchmark for agtech adoption for both farmers and industry.
There's more than just discussion offered at DAS, and it couldn't be hosted without the generous support of all sponsors and exhibitors. Click the button below to learn how you can support the growth of DAS.

The Wiradjuri phrase yindyamarra winhanganha means the wisdom of respectfully knowing how to live well in a world worth living in. This phrase represents who we are at Charles Sturt University – our ethos. It comes from traditional Indigenous Australian knowledge, but it also speaks to the mission of universities – to develop and spread wisdom to make the world a better place. Harnessing technology, we thrive as a distributed yet connected community, welcoming and engaging with people across Australia and the world.
