Thank you! Your support and participation made ICTforAg a success. We had over 175 people participate in the 14 breakout sessions, 10 lightning talks and 4 plenary sessions on June 3rd – check out the photos!
We know it was a success because 86% of feedback survey respondents rated the event excellent or great, with wonderful quotes about their experience. Here is one that represents the overall feedback:
“Before the conference, ICTforAg was just a buzzword to me – something I was intrigued by but didn’t have a clear understanding of when to use it or what the limitations are. Now, I understand the specific circumstances in which ICT can be useful in agriculture, what systems need to be in place to make the ICT solution truly take off, and what the limitations are.”
Presentations & Takeaways
There was a vibrant debate using the #ICTforAg hashtag on Twitter during the event. Do check out who said what to get a feel for the event as it rolled out out over the day.
Also, all conference participants received a free subscription to ICTworks (get yours here), where we’ll be publishing presentations and takeaways on the lightning talks, breakout sessions, and keynote speakers over the next few weeks. Please send us yours if you’d like us to publish your own thoughts too.
